SAIF's Education Programs

Awareness about abuse & a focus on healthy respectful relationships is a cornerstone to our prevention programs. All of our education programs are offered free of charge within our service operating area. 

Our Youth education program is for those 10-17 years of age. Topics are focused on building healthy relationships, enthusiastic consent & anti-bullying/cyber-bullying. All workshops work with the typical school bell schedule:

  •  Elementary are 37 minutes long

  • Junior High are 50 minutes

  • High School are 75 minutes

  • Sports teams are based on school/age level 

Adjustments may be accommodated, contact Education Facilitator to discuss your specific needs. 

Our Business education program focuses on employers & their employees in understanding the signs of abuse, how to help & what resources are available for co-workers that may be dealing with the affects of abuse in their personal lives. 

Our Community education program focuses on key topics that are raised as current issues or concerns with regards to abuse/potential for abuse. They are announced as they are developed. 

Please note: to book any of our education programs, please contact our Education Facilitator.
