EDUCATION TO PREVENT SEXUAL VIOLENCE

SARA currently provides 2- to 4-year consulting to assist schools as they develop prevention education programs for their students. Our Prevention Education staff draw from the most recent research and most effective curricula to build teacher training, classroom-based violence prevention education, after-school clubs, policy improvement, and more.

TRAINING

RESOURCES FOR COMMUNITY TRAINING

SARA's Outreach Coordinators are happy to provide allied professionals, community groups, faith organizations, etc. with an overview of SARA's mission and our services in the community.  The dynamics of sexual violence and its impact in our community provide a background for discussing the need for our services in the community and what SARA does to support survivors, educate community members, and to prevent sexual violence from occurring in the first place. These presentations will be tailored to meet each group's needs and focus area.


GET INVOLVED

DONATE, VOLUNTEER AND GIVE

By supporting SARA, you support a fundamental change in our community, where survivors of sexual violence are supported and heal well, and where the next generation stops sexual violence before it starts.
