RYI (School and youth work)
We currently have a team of prevention workers whose job it is to go round schools and community groups, in Perth and Kinross, talking to young people about issues relating to sexual violence. We work with young people from S1 upwards and discuss topics including gender; social media (sexting and grooming); sexualisation in the media; what sexual violence actually is, how it impacts people and support services available; the importance of consent; we raise awareness about child sexual exploitation and discuss how we can all play a part in preventing sexual violence.
And ultimately that’s the point – we want to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place. We think that by informing young people, raising awareness and creating a safe space for young people to share their opinions in relation to sexual violence will help put an end to sexual violence.
We firmly believe that young people today are the future change makers and can play a key role in challenging sexual violence at all levels.
If you would like us to visit your school or Youth Group speak to your Teacher/worker and we can arrange a workshop which best suits your group.
We can also come out for a short chat/presentation on what we do and who we are as well.
