Our Programs

Increasing awareness and understanding.

Community Education Goals

Our Prevention Education Department aims to increase our community’s awareness of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and child abuse prevention and intervention strategies through classroom and community presentations.

We know that sexual assault community education is key to eliminating sexual violence from our lives. All presentations are tailored to each individual group, and are available in English and Spanish.

Programs Offered

We currently offer the following sexual assault community education programs:

  • Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP)
  • Teen Assault Prevention Program (TAPP)
  • Juvenile Justice Crime Prevention Act (JJCPA)
  • Parent, Faculty, and Staff Presentations

If you are interested in becoming a sexual assault community education volunteer, you must attend our 30-hour training course including classroom group activity and lecture. Training also includes take-home reading and assignments regarding Verity’s current Prevention Education Curriculum, definitions of sexual assault and harassment, classroom management, and age-appropriate youth interactions.

Hours can be used to fulfill volunteer and internship requirements. This training is mandatory for all Prevention Education Department volunteers and interns. 

All volunteers are fingerprinted and must pass a background check before beginning their volunteer assignments in the classroom.
