Safety Detectives: A program designed for elementary classrooms to support community mobilization efforts for child sexual abuse prevention in Broome County. We know it is an adult responsibility to protect our children, but kids need the know-how to keep their own bodies, safe. Through discussion, role plays, and activities we give kids the tools they need to keep themselves safer. We empower kids to find clues/warning signs to identify “tricky” or unsafe people. Topics discussed: body ownership, privacy, boundaries, grooming & tricky adults.
Safe Dates: The Safe Dates program focuses on dating safety and in a healthy manner. This program teaches kids how to help friends, overcome gender stereotypes and touches on sexual assault prevention.
Middle and high school classes: CVAC offers a series of 3 subjects imperative to youth development called Social Safety. Possible subjects include: Cyber-identity (social networking safety, cyber-bullying, safe texting & harassment), Beyond No Means No (consent) & Dating Safely (healthy relationships)
