Sexual Assault & Violence
The meaning of the term sexual assault is often misunderstood. This course is built to clarify the meaning of sexual assault, topics surrounding assault and victimization, and will open a discussion of how it affects the community as a whole.
Though it seems hidden, human labor and sex trafficking affects us all. This presentation will discuss the various ways that trafficking may occur within the community. We incorporate recent data, and will bring awareness to the issues surrounding trafficking. This course is meant to raise awareness and educate ourselves and others to make a difference within our communities.
Consent is a topic that is important to ever person. Our Consent course of ten (10) sessions clarifies types of relationships, and appropriate levels of trust for each. We discuss and define terms with the audience while providing simple examples tailored to the age group present. The topic of consent covers physical consent as well as abuse and sharing of personal content in such a way as to leave the audience with a very clear understanding so that they are better equipped set their own boundaries and to honor the boundaries of those around them.
The internet has become a central tool for most of us. Most adults and many children have their own electronic devices, but are we aware of all the dangers we are exposing ourselves to? An important topic for both adults and children, this course offers a discussion on various types of dangers involved in internet use. We discuss best practices for internet protection, and measures that can be taken to protect yourself and your family.
Date Safe Project
In a world where people are constantly being told “What Not To Do,” The DATE SAFE Project believes the best approach is to give people positive how-to skills and helpful insights for addressing verbal consent (asking first), respecting boundaries, sexual decision-making, bystander intervention, and supporting survivors (opening the door for family and friends). We think you will see that our answer is quite straightforward., and you will see your world differently and be inspired to take a pledge of responsibility and take action. Talk first, ask first, respect the answer – see beyond the misguided sexual behavior and beliefs considered normal behavior. The Date Safe Project can be provided in 2-5 sessions.
