Green Dot Facilitator Training on the campus of Lebanon Valley College  July 27-30, 2015

Lebanon Valley College is pleased to invite you to participate in the Green Dot etc. Institute on July 27 – 30, 2015. This 4-day training sponsored by the college certifies attendees to implement the Green Dot violence prevention strategy on your college campuses. As we work to keep our campus communities safe and meet the requirements of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), bystander intervention has proven to be particularly impactful on reducing violence.

The Green Dot “model of influence” strategy is an innovative approach to violence prevention that harnesses the power of individual choices to shift social norms, resulting in broad-based culture change. Effectively training the many members of our campus -- faculty, administration, staff and students -- to be active bystanders, makes our campuses safer and more secure. LVC implemented Green Dot in the fall of 2013, and we are beginning to see widespread integration in campus life and a change in norms.

Attending the Institute at LVC is an advantageous way to introduce Bystander Intervention training to your institution or to train additional staff for an existing program. We have learned that it is essential to train enough people to adequately build and sustain Green Dot. The training at LVC significantly reduces the training cost and eliminates the need for distant travel and lodging for other Green Dot Institutes. In addition, this more localized training will facilitate building a network to strengthen our ability to share ideas and resources.

The 4 day training (8:30-5:00) includes lunch, snacks, and materials. The cost is $750.00 per person. A team of 4 or more is $500 per person. Members of sexual assault and domestic violence prevention programs are $250.00. All participants must register with Green Dot at the following link: event invite code: GDTLebVall (case sensitive)
