Learners' Own Words

"I appreciated the mix of information, and suggestions for how to teach that information to youth!"

"Great flow from the trainer. Felt accessible/that there was something to learn for people actively teaching sex education and those who work with youth as a whole."

"Logan was a dynamic presenter and educator, they used a lot of great examples and gave a lot of very helpful data!"

Your Training Description

Sexual violence frequently happens in young dating relationships, often because teens are not clear what consent means or how to ask for it. Unfortunately, consent education today may focus more on saying ‘no’ than how to assert and respect healthy boundaries. This limited approach ultimately fails young people because it doesn’t honor their reality. Educating youth about the skills of healthy consent helps them become more empowered adults. Effective consent education also reduces sexual coercion, harassment, and even assault.

Your ability to help youth navigate consent at every age is a proactive way to give them the tools they need for healthy relationships with themselves and others. Even in non-sexual interactions, a young person’s capacity to articulate boundaries, listen to, and advocate for their own needs will guide them throughout their life.

You’ll learn about enthusiastic consent and different ways to ask for consent. You’ll consider effective conversations to have at each developmental age, beyond just how to say ‘no’. Statistics and reasons why sexual assault goes underreported will also be addressed. The statistics may be alarming, but with effective consent education you’ll help young people build boundaries and maintain healthy relationships to prevent sexual assault.

Your Learning Objectives

  • Gain strategies for teaching young people about consent
  • Understand the drawbacks of consent education focused on “no means no”
  • Be able to articulate the importance of enthusiastic consent
  • Learn why sexual assault goes underreported in the United States
