We are now booking programming for the 2022-2023 school year! If you would like to schedule a program, please fill out our program request form, or reach out to our Prevention Manager, Libby.

  • Developed in collaboration with high school students, educators, and practitioners, Uniting in Action: Creating a Culture to Prevent Sexual Violence builds on the knowledge of participants to empower them in their role in shaping community responses to sexual violence. In focusing on the role of bystanders, workshop participants build knowledge to recognize sexually inappropriate and violent behaviors, develop empathy for survivors, and hone skills to support prosocial bystander intervention. Participants will leave the workshop empowered with the knowledge, confidence, and skills necessary to play a role in preventing sexual violence.

  • Many times, learning about the society wide myths and facts surrounding sexual assault can act as a front line and best defense for preventing sexual assault. To help equip adults and students alike, The Blue Bench offers programs that enable them to comfortably and efficiently talk about sexual assault with their family and friends, their neighbors and within their communities. Knowledge is Power: Sexual Assault Awareness includes an introduction to the myths and facts of sexual assault as well as information about what sexual assault is and the services available to assist survivors of an assault.
