Movies, media, celebrities – there’s a lot of misinformation around what’s considered OK behaviour, as well as how we should treat our own, and other peoples’ bodies and personal boundaries.
Our goal is to give your young people the knowledge, confidence, and skills to help keep themselves, and others, safe.
Our consent training workshops are fun, engaging, and always developmentally appropriate. Our workshops are designed to suit young people aged 5 – 18, in primary school, high school or in community groups.
Workshops can be held as a one-off session, or as part of an 8-week curriculum over the school term.
Our consent workshops can also be custom-designed to fit the needs of your group of young people. For example, we can create workshops that help teach young people to become critical consumers of porn. Or we can focus on what a healthy and respectful relationship looks like.
We can also adapt our consent training workshops to suit a range of learning needs, including for young people who live with autism or an intellectual disability.
