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. We’re open to creating new workshops that are relevant to our students and faculty within each RBHS school and program.

Bystander Intervention

VPVA believes that every member of RBHS has a responsibility to create a safer culture based on responsibility and respect. VPVA offers training on how you can identify potentially risky situations and ways to challenge the moment or support those involved to prevent further harm.
