Raise the Bar Indiana


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 drinking occurs, and the expectation to take action 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 certificate establishment please contact RaisetheBarIndiana@alternativesdv.org

We designed the program to be statewide. We offer trainings for others interested in facilitating establishment trainings in their local communities.  If you are interested in becoming a facilitator please contact RaisetheBarIndiana@alternativesdv.org
