Becoming a Green Dot Facilitator

Green Dot Facilitator Trainings are conducted on the Texas A&M University campus every two years.  Our next training will be held in June of 2018.  We are always looking for new facilitators at the Texas A&M University – College Station campus.  If you would like to talk to someone about becoming a Green Dot Facilitator, contact the Consensual Language, Education, Awareness and Relationships (CLEAR) Office at greendot@tamu.edu or 979.845.6241.

Like our last training in June 2016, we have opened the 2018 training to employees at Texas A&M systems schools who would like to implement Green Dot on their campus.

Summer 2018 Green Dot Institute

The Green Dot Strategy is a new and innovative approach to violence prevention. Green Dot harnesses the power of individual choices to shift social norms, resulting in broad-based culture change. Green Dot is based on a wealth of interdisciplinary research including social change theory, diffusion of innovation, communication, marketing, bystander intervention, and perpetration patterns.

This 4-day training certifies participants to implement the Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy on their college campus. Components of the training include:

  • A comprehensive review of the research and theories which inform the Green Dot Strategy.
  • Elements of the Green Dot Strategy and curriculum.
  • Developing an implementation plan.

Attendees experience an interactive and intriguing 4 days of training which inspire renewed hope and a vision for a safer world.

Participants must attend the entire training (4 days in June from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm daily) to become a Green Dot College Facilitator.

Questions about the Green Dot Institute should be directed to greendot@tamu.edu.

Participants from other Texas A&M University System Schools

Participants representing System Schools other than Texas A&M University – College Station must be approved by their school’s point of contact before registering for the training.  The Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy is designed to be coordinated by a team.  Having a central point of contact who is aware of all Green Dot Trained Facilitators on their campus ensures the greatest probability of program success.
