Interested in becoming a bystander intervention trainer? Applications are open now until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 10. The program facilitates JHU's bystander intervention and gender violence prevention training for undergraduates. Prior to start, trainers will learn about gender violence and in-depth facilitation/training skills. Trainers will teach peers to be effective bystanders against gender-based violence, including sexual and intimate partner violence, stalking, and sexual harassment.
Application information is on the program's webpage.
Previous knowledge of and experience with gender violence prevention is preferred but not required. Positive energy, flexible schedules, good communication skills, and desire and willingness to train large and varied groups of peers are required. This program complements studies in psychology, sociology, public health, anthropology, and gender and women's studies. Any undergraduate student can apply! This is a paid position, and trainers will be expected to work three to eight hours per week. Their responsibilities include fulfilling program requests and attending an initial 24-hour intensive training (i.e., spread out over a few weekends/weekdays, depending on availability).
