Blue Bench: Bringing in the Bystander
Thursday, October 3, 2019
1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
This is an evidence-based sexual violence prevention program originally designed for college populations. The bystander model approaches all students as neither a potential perpetrator nor victim, but instead as people who would want to be a part of the solution. The Blue Bench Prevention Specialists engage students to understand the role that they play in preventing sexual assault by becoming an active bystander. Learn what it means to become an active bystander with The Blue Bench, who will be on campus Thursday, Oct. 3rd, to provide sexual assault awareness and prevention training. This is an in-depth session that will help participants understand sexual assault, recognize when it occurs, and learn how to be a part of the solution.
