REAL TALK is our 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.
The advocates at the Sexual Violence Center engage in outreach to diverse communities through participation in various events, including health fairs, community resource fairs, and music events. Our advocates love to embrace creativity in our outreach. We have represented SVC by setting up tables at venues such as music festivals, breweries, street festivals, and career fairs, ensuring a presence wherever the audience needs access to information about their services.
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.
