Presentations for Youth

All of our presentations are offered free of charge and designed to be flexible on time depending on the length of your class or session. Our presentations are geared towards a classroom setting but can easily be adapted for civic organizations, clubs, and teams. Easily choose a topic from the slide below and contact us via the presentation request link. 

Grade: 6 - 8 
Understanding Forms of Harassment 
PowerPoint Presentation 

Students will learn what forms of harassment there are and what these may look like. They’ll explore the Power and Control Wheel to understand where harassing behaviors may come from, and study the impact different forms of harassment have, including bullying.

 

Training for Adults

All topics are geared towards those that work directly with youth especially in a classroom or group setting. There are varying lengths of time for each training and we will do our best to work with you. Trainings are provided free of charge at this time due to grant funding that allows us to offer them to those that work directly with youth.

Trainers will help staff and faculty understand their role with disclosure, give examples of spotting red flags in their students, and provide information on how to respond with trauma-informed approaches. We will also provide information on the importance of connecting to community resources.
Presentation
is designed to be flexible to fit within 45-90 minutes.

Documentary + 5 Lessons: High School Appropriate

This educational resource brings into the classroom conversations about the root causes of sexual violence and the role of social media to help students understand consent, intervention strategies and healthy relationships by following the stories of Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman. This drama examines the ripple effects on families, friends, schools real-life and communities when two underage young women find that sexual assault crimes against them have been caught on camera.
 

The staff at SWCC will provide a way for your classroom to view this documentary and follow with 5 lessons that will challenge the classroom with a thoughtful exchange of ideas.
