Agent of Change

By We End Violence

Agent of Change uses an online game to put students in situations where they think about how violence impacts their daily lives. Players interact with digital characters in situations that might occur in a college setting.

In each three-minute to five-minute scene, the player takes part in conversations with digital characters about:

  • Sexual assault
  • Relationship violence
  • Sexual harassment
  • Stalking

During conversations, the player makes choices about what to say and how to respond to other digital characters. As players make their choices, the digital characters respond to them by:

  • Supporting their choice
  • Modeling better responses
  • Challenging their choice

As players move through the game, they are placed onto a path that is equal to their knowledge about violence prevention. This allows players to learn, develop, and practice the skills needed to prevent violence before it happens.

The game uses evidence-informed approaches from the field of violence prevention like:

  • Myth acceptance
  • Norms challenging
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Feminist and social norms theory
  • Bystander intervention

Agent of Change pairs with educational materials and programs from We End Violence that help continue the work beyond the online game.
