Want to learn how to effectively intervene in real life situations?

BeVocal Bystander Intervention Training

BeVocal is designed to address multiple types of harm and enhance an individual's confidence to intervene. The BeVocal initiative seeks to promote intervention as a norm of our community, and in turn change the campus culture. BeVocal believes that while the issues or type of harm may be different, the action steps to intervene, overcome potential barriers, and mobilize resources are consistent.
