Designed for Middle, High School, and College Students
Our VOICE offers a variety of innovative programs pursuing our mission of creating a community free from sexual violence. Each program is evidenced-based or research-informed for maximum impact and designed to reach a broad range of populations throughout Buncombe County.
Our VOICE school programs are designed for 6th-12th grade and college-aged students. We provide programs free of charge to public schools and request $200 for all other institutions, on a sliding scale. Please contact us to discuss discounted rates if this price is beyond your budget. We strongly believe financial challenges should not restrict anyone’s access to these programs.
Shifting Boundaries – (Middle Grades) A CDC approved, evidence-based prevention program for middle school students on bullying, sexual harassment, and precursors to dating violence. (4 sessions)
Consent is Everything (Middle / High / College) – A research-informed, stand alone workshop exploring the difference between flirting and harassment, defining and discussing consent, and exploring active bystander intervention strategies. (1 session)
CodeRED (College) – Early college years are commonly referred to as the “red zone” for likelihood of experiencing sexual assault. In this workshop, students learn about Consent, Drug Facilitated Sexual Assault (DFSA), and Bystander Intervention techniques to help interrupt and prevent potentially harmful situations.
Bystander Intervention Techniques (School/ Community/ All Ages) – Statistically proven to be the most effective method of reducing problem behaviors within a population, Bystander Intervention techniques empower every community member to recognize their vital role in establishing and maintaining a culture of consent.
