St. Jude House is certified to train the staff of alcohol-serving establishments in the Raise the Bar Indiana program. Crown Brewing staff were re-certified on July 8th.
Raise the Bar Indiana is a bystander intervention training program. The goal is to equip participants with information and tools needed to recognize the signs of victimization and assault. It also provides tips on how to intervene safely on behalf of the victim. The overall vision of Raise the Bar Indiana is to create safe environments for community members to meet and interact by addressing social norms of drinking behavior, the physical environment where drinking occurs, and the expectation of action to take when situations appear to be unsafe.
“This program was valuable to us last year and we wanted to be sure all of our staff were recertified and learned new ways to interact with our patrons. We want everyone to feel safe and secure while enjoying their visit with us,” stated Zach Bryan, Brand Development Manager of Crown Brewing located at 211 S. East Street, Crown Point, IN. “We recently celebrated our 10th anniversary and look forward to many more years serving this community. Cheers to St. Jude House for bringing this movement to Northwest Indiana!”
