Keene Green Dot is a bystander-focused initiative aimed at reducing the rates of power-based personal violence.

Keene Green Dot offers a variety of trainings, talks, and summits to help educate the Keene community.

Event Summaries:

The overview talk introduces the basic elements of the Green Dot strategy while using persuasive and inspirational language to engage participants in immediate action. The basics of this speech are used to introduce Keene members to Green Dot etc., generate community-wide buy-in, and begin the process of behavioral change.  For a dynamic overview of Green Dot etc., please visit http://www.livethegreendot.com/train_curriculum.html

The bystander training is designed to equip participants with the necessary connection, knowledge and skill to increase their proactive and reactive bystander behaviors. This training utilizes videos, role-plays, and other exercises to maximize the level of engagement of participants and help them apply the concepts in the curriculum to their own lives and practice the skills they need to be proactive bystanders.

Youth Summits are a fun and low-stress way to expose Keene’s youth to the key messages of Green Dot and ensure that they are informed about ongoing efforts to prevent violence in their community. We want them to know about and feel connected to what adults are doing to make their community safer. To accomplish this goal, Green Dot staff will deliver two youth summits in Keene as a part of the CDC study of the community version of Green Dot that the University of New Hampshire is conducting. One of the Youth Summits will engage a diverse group of influential 7th and 8th graders from Keene’s middle school(s). The other will engage a diverse group of influential students from area high schools.
