WHAT is this?

A full day of learning about CONSENT!  See our learning objectives for more information.  Our Keynote will be presented by the young people who started SafeBAE, an organization dedicated to ending sexual assault and dating abuse.  They were also featured in the movie Audrie & Daisy, which is available on Netflix.  

Check out our Agenda and Goals for more info about the day. 

Lunch and snacks are provided. 

WHO should attend:

Young people who are 14-18 (or enrolled in high school) and their adult mentors and who want to have conversations and learn about consent and sexual assault.  We want anyone who wants to engage to participate-- our goals are related to both prevention and intervention.  There is an action and activism component included as well. 

Teams of high school-aged youth can be clubs, sports teams, Queer Straight Alliances, youth groups, or any other group of high school students WITH their coaches, advisers, parents, youth group leaders, principals, & teachers. 

Adult mentors!  We are registering you NOW.  Click HERE to go to our online registration.  You will be responsible for collecting and submitting registrations for your team members. 

 

We have approval and support from our project partners: the Mount Baker, Blaine, and Ferndale School Districts.  If your students attend a school in these districts, they will be able to receive permission to attend.  Need help advocating that this is important and students should be excused from class for it?  Let us know how we can help!
