Education and Awareness

RBHS VPVA aims to provide educational information about interpersonal violence (i.e. sexual violence, dating violence, stalking, and harassment), including what it looks like, how to respond when it occurs, and ways to prevent it.

In addition, VPVA creates programming to bring greater awareness to these issues, engage students in important conversations about violence, and promote the office to ensure students can access our services.

RBHS VPVA is open to creating new workshops that are relevant to our students and faculty within each RBHS school and program. Established programming also exists for the RBHS community.

Bringing In the Bystander

Bringing In the Bystander (BITB) is an evidence-based prevention program that focuses on how students can identify potentially risky situations and use their personal skills to move from being a passive bystander to actively engaging in the situation to prevent harm.

The Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project – TCP is an awareness program that asks the community to design a t-shirt that supports survivors, shares their story, or offers a message of change to end interpersonal violence.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and VPVA will display information regarding consent and resources throughout the month via tabling events, visual displays, and social media.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and VPVA will create awareness and education programming that focuses on healthy relationships, the impact of violence, and how to support peers.
