Leadership @ Wes: Stepping Up and Stepping In

Taylor Wells ’14 leads the way with this:

Do you want free food? Do you want to boost your resume? Do you want to be a leader on campus?

For the next five weeks, get a free meal, learn to host great events and improve the Wesleyan community by learning about bystander intervention, inclusion and social justice. AND, as a bonus, get a certificate of completion to help boost your resume!

The entirety of the program is focused on recognizing and understanding harmful situations and how to effectively intervene. The program will focus on bystander intervention, sexual violence and intimate partner violence prevention, alcohol use, inclusion and social justice, and, hosting and managing social events on campus.

Food will be served at the sessions and space will be limited. If you are interested, please contact Scott Backer (sbacker01[at]wesleyan[dot]edu) in the Dean of Student’s Office to get more information about participating in the program. Each of the five sessions will be about 60-90 minutes. The sessions will take place on Sundays at 11am and Wednesdays at 5pm.
