REAL TALK is Sexual Violence Center’s series of interactive presentations for middle school, high school, and college students ages 12-22. These presentations are designed to empower young people with the knowledge and skills they need to engage in healthy relationships and create safer communities.
Sexual Violence Center offers educational presentations to the broader community through conferences, resource fairs, and public events.
Sexual Violence Center provides training on sexual violence to professionals in medical, legal, educational, human service, law enforcement, and correctional facilities. Our training can enhance your organization’s understanding of trauma-informed care and improve the quality of services you provide to victim survivors.
