Robins seeks Green Dot facilitators

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. --

As the Air Force continues its efforts to prevent interpersonal violence through its Green Dot program, Robins Air Force Base is seeking volunteers to facilitate the training.

Green Dot is a tiered approach to interpersonal violence outreach and prevention Air Force wide.

Tandra Hunter, a specialist for Primary Prevention of Violence and the primary prevention subject matter expert for the 78th Air Base Wing, said Green Dot is proven to reduce interpersonal violence  by focusing on the role of the bystander.

“We’re looking for motivated personnel (enlisted, officers and civilians) with an interest in preventing interpersonal violence to become Green Dot implementers and coordinators,” she said.

The ideal facilitator will be comfortable speaking in public and speaking about interpersonal violence and suicide prevention. They must be motivated to make a difference with this cultural change effort.

Potential Green Dot implementers and coordinators must complete an application and memorandum of agreement, to be signed by their  supervisor and commander, in order to be considered for the role.

An interview will then be conducted with the Specialist for the Primary Prevention of Violence. Hunter said those selected will join a great team of Green Dot implementers and coordinators at Robins. 

Nominations will be accepted until Feb. 10. For details, e-mail Tandra Hunter at: robins.resilience@us.af.mil
