What is Green Dot?


Texas A&M International University is a community against violence. Green Dot gives every one of us the opportunity to reduce power-based personal violence in our community and help keep each other safe.

Green Dot is a comprehensive approach to violence prevention that capitalizes on the power of peer and cultural influence across all levels of the socio-ecological model. Informed by social change model theory, the model targets all community members as potential bystanders, and seeks to engage them, through awareness, education and skill-practice, in a proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as a norm, as well as reactive interventions.


What is Green Dot Training?


An interactive training designed to equip participants with the necessary connections, knowledge and skills to increase their proactive and reactive bystander behaviors. Length of the training can range from 6 hours to a weekend-retreat. The goal is to create a safe, non-judgemental and neutral place for participants to objectively examine their understanding of violence, the obstacles that keep them from acting, and what might inform their decisions to act in the future.
