Bystander Intervention Training
ICA’s Bystander Intervention Training 1 will include practical training to help participants interrupt and address racism wherever they find it. This training teaches the history of bystander intervention, an overview of racism and its various forms, and an introduction to various constructive ways to intervene during instances of racism.
Participants will begin to recognize ways they can use practical anti-racism tools to support Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour in their communities.
Fee Structure for Bystander Intervention Training
For Organizations / Groups: $1000
($500 each for Bystander Module 1 and 2. Both must modules be taken consecutively)

“I want to express my gratitude for the learning achieved through the Bystander Intervention Training. It was excellent. Your enthusiasm and energetic facilitation was a critical aspect of the training’s success. Your personal stories of taking action made the learning immediate and applicable. I feel so much better prepared to take action in the face of racist behaviour. I’ve made the shift to Upstander thanks to this training.”
I am so happy that I completed both the bystander 1 and 2 training modules as it gave me the tools and confidence I need to become an effective upstander. I came into these sessions with an understanding of what racism and microaggressions are and the importance of speaking up, but never quite knew how. After learning in the safe, interactive space created by Tari and the ICA, I now feel ready to be the ally and upstander I want and need to be.
