Image of Green Dot etc.
NCC is participating with the Safe Center in a major effort to reduce sexual violence and encourage NCC students to be effective bystanders in the areas involving discrimination--sexual violence, bullying, gender, race, harassment, etc.  The attached flyer has details about the Green Dot program, a nationally-known program on bystander education.
 
NCC will certify 16 Green Dot trainers who will then run workshops on campus, training NCC student clubs and classes as well as faculty groups in sexual violence prevention and bystander effectiveness.  "Training the trainers" in the Green Dot program will involve 4 full days (these will be part of your work responsibilities) over a period of several weeks or months.  Following completion of the 4 days, the trainers will begin to run the campus workshops for clubs and classes, etc. 
 
On behalf of Craig Wright, I am inviting you to participate in this program as a trainer.  We are scheduling an exploratory meeting for Monday, March 2, 11:00am in CCB 251 and I hope you can come.  
Please let me know if you are interested in participating (or not).  Contact me with any questions at ext. 27148 or via email at Phyllis.kurland@ncc.edu.
