Programs for Youth

All Resilience programs are conducted by trained professionals. Each 45-minute session is developmentally appropriate, highly interactive, and tailored for your group. Our programs are evidence-informed and we work to include multiple learning styles and educational best practices.

Grades K-2: “Roles & Body Rules” 

(5 lessons)

By the completion of this program, students will have a basic understanding of the main objectives of Resilience’s youth program. First, they will explore how gender roles can be harmful. Second, they will identify private parts and recognize safe and unsafe touches. Then, students will learn to express their personal boundaries, model asking permission for safe touches, and identify 5 safe adults they can report to. Finally, they will be able to explain the main points of the full curriculum, including safe/unsafe touch, reporting, safe adults, uh-oh feeling, and supporting survivors.

Grades 6-8: “Making Schools Safe” 

(7 lessons)

By the completion of this program, students will be empowered to claim autonomy over their own bodies by identifying and demonstrating their bodily rights. They will be able to implement bystander intervention methods on both community and individual levels. Students will explore gender in the eyes of the media by analyzing the way our culture informs our views of gender, sexuality and relationships.

Resilience also offers trainings for professionals and parents. All of our educational programs are free or on a sliding scale.

Grades 3-5: “Respect & Response” 

(5 lessons)

By the completion of this program, students will challenge gender roles, categorize relationships as healthy or unhealthy, and know how to identify and report sexual abuse from both an adult and a peer. Teachers are encouraged to continue the conversation with their classes before and after program implementation and undergo our teacher training on responding to sexual assault disclosures, since children who previously have not reported may do so in the course of this program.

Grades 9-12: “Catalyst for Change” 

(6 lessons)

By the completion of this program, students will be able to explain why consent is crucial to not only healthy sexuality but a healthy community. Moreover, they will understand how violence is about power and control and that violence begets violence within their community. Students will analyze how sexism contributes to community violence, brainstorm concrete ways to end sexism, and explore ways to engage in healthy relationships in the digital age. Using this knowledge, students will plan a school event or group to combat common forms of violence.
