Come learn more about Green Dot – the new interpersonal violence program at Barrington High School.  The Green Dot Violence Prevention Strategy is a national program that trains students, faculty, and staff in bystander intervention to help prevent instances of power-based personal violence (PBPV). PBPV is a form of violence where one individual asserts power, control, or intimidation over another to cause harm.  This research-based approach employing social change theory targets all community members as potential bystanders and seeks to engage them through awareness, education and skills practice.  By teaching proactive behaviors that establish intolerance of violence as the norm, as well as strategies for intervention in high-risk situations, Green Dot training results in a reduction of violence in the school community.

At the BStrong Together “Green Dot for Parents” Parent Coffee, Green Dot trainers will teach parents and community members about the program, explain the Three D’s, and provide participants with the shared language so that you know how to talk with your children or students about living the Green Dot in their  own lives.

    Be sure to stop by the BStrong Together booth at KidFest 2019!

    KidFest is a FREE, fun, family event that gets the entire family outside and moving.

    Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, Leave No Child Inside and the Barrington Park District come together to host this fabulous community event, along with over 20 other different organizations. This is a FREE event located at Citizen’s Park. When you and your family arrive at the park, check in at one of the registration tents to get your All Access Wristband to participate in all of the activities. Then, pick up a free kite (for ages 2-10), provided by the Barrington Breakfast Rotary Club, and fly it in the big open field. At your leisure, experience each of the activity stations. Climb a tree, build a birdhouse, race your parents, do an obstacle course or explore the creatures that live in the pond. Food and drinks available for purchase from Rotary Grill! We have something for everyone to enjoy and its ALL FREE! This event is very popular and parking is limited. FREE kites will be provided to all children ages 2-10. One kite per child.

    The KidFest mission is to provide activities that inspire healthy habits, expose nature opportunities in the area and to encourage families to get up and explore the great outdoors. Our goal is to inspire families to go for a hike, a bicycle ride, play catch, fish, play frisbee and of course, Fly A Kite!
