About the Event
August is Bystander Month! Join VC Green Dot and learn bystander skills to prevent violence in our community by attending our half-day Green Dot Bystander Training.
A Green Dot Bystander Training is an opportunity to think about safe and realistic ways that each of us can do little actions to help our community become and stay safe. If you are a shy person, it will be a chance for you to come up with ways to react to moments of harm (red dots) in less direct ways - maybe you can ask someone who knows the people involved for help, maybe you can cause a distraction. If you're direct, we'll think through ways you can respond to a red dot in a safe way. This is low-pressure opportunity to practice bystander skills, so when you are in a red dot situation "in the real world" (moment of harm that sparks your suspicion), you're ready to help in a way that makes sense for who you are. The training is engaging, interactive, and free. Let attending this training be the first Green Dot (behavior to prevent harm) you do today to help end violence in Valley City.
