The Green Dot Strategy is an innovative approach to violence prevention. Green Dot harnesses the power of individual choices to shift social norms, resulting in broad-based culture change. Green Dot is based on a wealth of interdisciplinary research including social change theory, diffusion of innovation, communication, marketing, bystander intervention, and perpetration patterns. Visit our website to learn more about the Green Dot curriculum. The Green Dot Institute for Professionals is a 4-day training that enables attendees to implement the Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy. Students are not permitted to attend this training. For more information on student trainings please contact Lea Hegge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Components of the training include:
- A comprehensive review of the research and theories, which inform the Green Dot Strategy.
- Elements of the Green Dot Strategy and curriculum.
- Developing an implementation plan.
Attendees at the Green Dot Institute experience an interactive and personally challenging training that is designed to inspire renewed hope and a vision for a safer world.
To maximize the potential for real change on a college campus, a team approach to Green Dot is required. If you are coming from a campus that is already implementing Green Dot, you are welcome to attend the training solo or with other team members. If your campus is new to Green Dot, we require a team of at least 2-3 participants from your campus if you have 3,000 students or less, 3-5 participants if you have 3,000-10,000 students, and 5 or more participants if you have a student body of 10,000 or larger. These are absolute minimums. We recommend a bench as deep as possible. An exception can be made if an individual is simply "scouting" the program to see if it would be a good fit for their campus. If you attend to scout the program, you may not implement until additional members of your campus/community are trained. As such, you will not be permitted to keep the curricula manuals. If you have a large campus, please contact us to learn more about an onsite training at email@example.com. One person cannot single-handedly create the sustained changes that an issue like power-based personal violence requires. We recommend that team members include not only designated prevention/intervention staff, but also professionals across your institution like faculty, student affairs staff, and administrators. Finally, any participants from agencies outside of a campus are required to attend in partnership with a local campus team. While off-site agencies can provide much-needed support and expertise, Green Dot is a campus mobilizing effort and must be led from within the institution.
Breakfast will be served from 7:30 am-8:30 am and training will promptly follow starting at 8:30 am until 5:00 pm daily.
