Our Learning Tools give our sessions their structure. The Map is placed at the center of a table, with students seated around it, providing a visual reference for the various topics examined. Participants take turns reading from the Session Script, which contain scripted questions and prompts that initiate discussions and activities. The Facilitator Guide outlines the process of delivering the session, serving as the instructions for the facilitator. It includes content-specific information as well as helpful cues and tips. The tools also include various Card Activities, such as definition matching and myths vs. facts, which add another layer of engagement and interactivity to the experience. At the end of the session, participants go over their Resource Handouts, which describe the prevention, response, and recovery resources available to them on campus.

This is what students are saying about our program

I’ve given and received quite a few sexual assault trainings, and this was by far the best...The program was designed to get participants to form their own ideas, and speak up. And it worked!

We had a great discussion about bystander intervention. This will definitely make it easier for me to intervene in the future.
— Carlos
It was reassuring to see how much other students cared about these issues. It made me feel like we can support each other in this.
— Adrianne
Talking about social norms made me realize how standing up for little things can make a big difference.
