We offer age-appropriate educational and empowering prevention programs for student’s pre-K through college. All of our programs are interactive and discussion based. From preschool through 7th grade, students will learn to define personal safety rights, recognize manipulative relationships, bystander intervention and how to report it to a trusted adult. Our 8th grade and high school programs focus on understanding sexual violence, identifying healthy relationships, consent vs. compliance and how to get help. Our college programs dive deeper into the dynamics of sexual assault, gender socialization, objectification and survivor support.
