Testimonials “I’ve learned how to deal with unhealthy relationships by using the tools (the educators) have given me.

Our goal in teaching about sexual violence is not to scare students, but to provide them with accurate, necessary information to protect themselves and others from an all-too frequent crime. We educate students about the rate of sexual violence and highlight areas of Connecticut’s sexual violence law that could greatly impact them.
We work to dispel the many myths that exist about sexual violence and rape while providing practical skills for navigating risky situations.
Lessons on sexual violence are often included as part of the Healthy Relationships curriculum.The DVYEP includes background information, lesson plans, educator sheets, student surveys and handouts, as well as a poster in both English and Spanish.It is designed for use in high school health classes, but is appropriate with any group of high school-aged youth.Additionally, an overview of the services Safe Futures offers is provided to all of our students with particular attention given to the domestic violence and sexual assault hotline numbers.Students are encouraged to use the services themselves and/or refer others they know who may be in need now or in the future. The Healthy Relationships program is typically taught over five consecutive days.
This program is offered to students in grades 7 through 12.
