Do you want to learn how to be a bystander and intervene in situations where people are at risk? Do you want to help in building support for survivors of sexual assault? Do you want to learn more about creating positive change for our community? The Prevention Intervention Network (PIN) is made up of college students who offer peer-led bystander education training to help to educate participants on becoming empowered to be bystanders and create a community of students that are preventing sexual violence.
The program began at Goshen College in 2015 and is advised by Kendra Yoder, Title IX deputy coordinator. The group has offered training to all Goshen College students, along with many employees and other off-campus groups, like high schools and church youth groups. PIN educators commit to at least 25 hours of training and weekly meetings as part of their commitment to the program.
