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. 

Technology & Harassment presentation

This is a one-time presentation to teach the potential dangers of technology, specifically sexting, the legal and social ramifications, and alternate ways to respond to requests.

 

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.

Advocating for Your Students presentation

Our youth staff will help system professionals 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.

 

Curriculum Options

  • Parent Permission Forms are available upon request for all curriculum.

  • When you request a curriculum you will receive further information on how to prepare youth for the course.

Safe Dates Curricula

This four-session curriculum is designed to stop and prevent teen dating violence, victimization and perpetration through interactive class activities and evidence-based information. Will walk through various warning signs, how to help friends experiencing dating violence, how to overcome gender stereotypes, and how to empower through healthy communication.
