Consent is a Conversation

The middle and senior school program aim to stop intimate partner violence and sexual harm from occurring by promoting healthy, respectful intimate relationships. We identify and reduce contributors to harm while promoting healthy, ethical sexual decision making. A thorough understanding of affirmative consent underpins all age appropriate content.
