Green Dot Violence Prevention

Too many individuals experience power-based personal violence such as bullying, dating violence, and sexual assault during their time in high school. To address this the Green Dot program is being implemented at the Kodiak High School. The KIBSD has partnered with KWRCC and KANA to roll out the program. Trainings will be provided for all members of the Kodiak High School community over the 2021-2022 school year.  Green Dot is a violence prevention strategy focused on preventing power-based personal violence. It seeks to permanently reduce rates of interpersonal violence by establishing two cultural norms at high schools: 1) Power-based personal violence will not be tolerated; and 2) Everyone is expected to do their part to maintain a safe school. Green Dot invites individuals to reconsider their personal role in preventing violence and shifting social and cultural norms. Green Dot sees all school community members as potential active bystanders and seeks to safely engage them in violence prevention by empowering them with the tools to do “green dots” – small, individual and manageable actions and behaviors that express intolerance for violence.

Emergency Medical Services Training

Our EMS program was able to coordinate local ETT, EMT I-EMERGE, and EMT-II training for first responders in the Kodiak region to help build resource capacity at the organizational and local level.  We have partnered with Bayside Fire Department to provide dedicated space for us to offer these EMS classes and skills workshops.  BLS, CPR and Basic First Aid classes are also available online to make it easier for participants in our villages to complete the didactic training prior to remote skills verification.  We purchased EMS training equipment for each village for on-site assessments, drills and classes for village EMS providers and students.
