The Sexual Violence Prevention program uses a public health approach to prevent domestic and dating violence, sexual harassment, bullying, and human trafficking by:

  • Building organizational and community capacity for the prevention of sexual violence.
  • Providing age-appropriate trainings, workshops, and seminars about healthy relationship development.
  • Increasing skill-building for respectful peer-to-peer and intimate relationships.
  • Changing societal norms to ones that don’t tolerate sexual violence.
