Training Active Bystanders

  • Arlington Senior Center 27 Maple Street Arlington, MA 02476 USA (map)

Active Bystander Training helps participants recognize when they are bystanders to harmful situations, and analyze and evaluate the consequences for everyone involved.

If you witness a harmful situation, you have a choice to make. Should you do something? How do you decide?

This 2-hour workshop helps participants realize what it means to be an Active Bystander. Participants review examples of harm in our communities, analyze the roles of people involved in a bystander situation, discuss the inhibitors and promoters of active bystandership, and brainstorm on effective ways to take action.

The workshop is appropriate for adults and motivated teens.

Registration required.
