Bystander Training

Bystander Intervention programs aim to empower individuals to confidently intervene in an incident in order to stop it. 

Individuals learn how to prevent and de-escalate situations, while maintaining their own safety and the safety of others around them. Engaging the broader community, raising awareness of sexual violence in addition to changing the social norms are some of the outcomes of bystander intervention training.
