Raise the Bar Indiana is a bystander intervention training for alcohol serving establishments. The training equips participants with the tools and knowledge needed to recognize the signs of perpetration, victimization, and assault. It also provides instruction on how to safely intervene on behalf of the victim. The overall vision of Raise the Bar Indiana is to create safe environments for community members to meet and interact by addressing the social norms of drinking behavior, the physical environment of space where driving occurs, and the expectation of action to take when situations appear unsafe.
Each training is tailored for the specific establishment. Participants work through potential scenarios to practice the intervention techniques they have learned. They also evaluate the environment to identify any unsafe areas, and brainstorm solutions for increasing safety for all patrons. If you are interested in becoming a Raise the Bar Indiana certified establishment and/or server please contact RaisetheBarIndiana@alternativesdv.org
Ultimately we hope to see this program promoted throughout the state. To achieve this goal we provide Facilitator Trainings for others who are interested in providing establishment trainings for bars and taverns in their local communities.
