Your Journey at Your Pace

IC Responsibility employs a core curriculum which acts as the foundation of the program Bystander Intervention, Opioid Overdose, Understanding Identity, Facilitation & Leadership; and applied tracks which take a deeper dive into content areas such as First Responder Education, Equity & Belonging, Self-Care & Supporting Survivors, and Mental Health and Well-Being. The applied tracks offer participants the opportunity to connect the core tenants of bystander intervention to an area of professional and/or personal interest.
