Safe Voices’ educators are committed to providing prevention-based programming to youth in each county, including classroom workshops, outreach at school activities such as sporting events, facilitating reading groups and conducting special awareness campaigns for Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention month in February. Educators also help facilitate student-led efforts such as the Voices Committed to Change program in Oxford County.
Our educators work with staff and faculty that interact with youth, including teachers, guidance counselors, and caseworkers. They can conduct trainings, provide materials, and make referrals as needed. Educators also serve as youth advocates and are available to meet one-on-one with youth who feel unsafe in their relationships.
See the following links for the types of programming we offer within each grade range:
Advocacy Beyond the School System
In addition to school-based activities, educators facilitate workshops and groups with a variety of underserved and non-traditional youth. All of our activities can be adapted for use in group homes, youth shelters, and drop-in centers. These curricula are designed to address the special concerns of youth who may be homeless, parenting, have a mental health diagnosis, and/or otherwise lack traditional support systems.
