During COVID 19, we recognize the heightened importance of providing educational programming in a safe and accessible format to bolster community response and support for survivors’ experiences. Like other Pathway to Prevention programs, our virtual programming draws from scientifically supported approaches to prevention, is developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive.
Knowledge Is Power: Sexual Assault Awareness and Bystander Action is a 2 hour education program presented to educators, youth serving professionals and the community.
