Training Active Bystanders (TAB)

CHNA 9 and the Gardner Community Action Team have recently partnered with Quabbin Mediation to certify nine trainers who form the new North Central TAB Hub. Training active bystanders is about identifying when harm is happening and safely taking positive action to intervene – moving from being a passive bystander to an active one. The training is appropriate for anyone over the age of 12 – community groups, municipal departments, corporate or nonprofit employees, educators and students, faith-based organizations, and more! In many cases, the training can be offered free of charge!

For information or to book a training, email CHNA 9.

For information about TAB in general, see the Training Active Bystanders website.
