OUTREACH & EDUCATION
PREVENTION STARTS EARLY
Education, one of the foundational components of RCIS, provides community members of all ages the opportunity to become active advocates for prevention and support for victim-survivors of sexual violence. Prevention starts early with children learning about positive and negative relationships and setting healthy boundaries with friends, and adults, including coaches, religious leaders, and other adults in a supervisory role. As adolescents, topics such as Consent, Coercion, Sexual Harassment, Intimate Partner Violence, Dating Violence, Safety Planning, Campus Safety, and Human Responses to Trauma are sensitive issues that can be challenging to discuss. RCIS offers presentations with a trauma-focused approach, acknowledging that students may be victims or know victims. We provide resources to public and private schools, Parent groups, student organizations, youth sports teams, religious organizations, and scouts.
If you are interested in giving a presentation to students in a classroom, youth sports team, youth organization, or religious youth group, don’t hesitate to contact Kristen Johnson, Outreach Educator, at 410-857-0900 or firstname.lastname@example.org
