Green Dot Trainings

Prevention education and promoting safer communities is an essential part of our work at Helping Services. Dating Violence and Stalking Advocacy Coordinator, Brittany McIntyre, continues to partner with the Title IX office and the Office of Student Engagement at Luther College, to provide the evidence-based bystander curriculum, Green Dot. Communities that actively use the Green Dot program have seen reductions in sexual violence, relationship abuse, and stalking by 17-21%.

Green Dot relies on the premise that if everyone does their small part and commits to individual responsibility, the combined effect is a safer culture that is intolerant of violence. Our community has not been immune to the impact and feelings associated with these types of violence but we can work together to improve upon our knowledge, skills, and resources to further address and prevent this harm.

Helping Services staff have been fortunate enough to partner with Luther College to provide this training 15 times, reaching 611 students, staff, faculty, and community members. If you are interested in learning more or attending a Green Dot training reach out to us at info@helpingservices.org or 563-387-1720.
