Services

Cayuga's Watchers provides free event supervision and bystander intervention education. Our student employees are trained (and paid!) to operate anonymously and non-confrontationally to keep social events running smoothly and event-goers safe. Below is a more detailed explanation of the procedures for a typical event.

timeline


Before

A student group on campus requests Cayuga's Watchers for a social event, and we put together the best team we have.

During

The team of 4-6 Watchers arrives at the event 15 minutes early to meet with the host and exchange contact information. Watchers then socialize with party-goers, using their training to engage in a non-confrontational manner if necessary.

After

The Watchers and host will fill out post-event feedback forms so that we can continue to improve our service. Information is of course strictly confidential.
