Have you seen us in your School?
The RASAC YOUTH INITIATIVE (RYI)
Our RYI Staff team deliver workshops to almost all the high schools in Perth & Kinross as well as the College and University.
Our workshops are for all years groups and cover lots of different topics such as:
- Gender Stereotypes,
- Social Media,
- What is Sexual Violence,
- Sexualisation and Pornography,
- And much more
You might have seen us in class or in the corridors going from classroom to classroom. You can always ask us a question, tell us something you think we should know, find out about our Youth Ambassador Programme or just simply say Hello!
We also deliver workshops for youth group and clubs so you might see us there. You can always ask us to come a deliver a session if you think your group might like to know more.
You might have also seen us at a stall at high school, the college or the university. We keep busy!
We love our jobs and believe that young people are the future change makers and can play a key role in challenging sexual violence. We also learn so much from young people and they make our jobs fun and challenging.
If you would like us to visit your school or Youth Group speak to your Teacher/worker and we can arrange a workshop.
And you can always say 'Hi' if you see us.
Does your school get involved with YPI?
YPI stands for Youth and Philanthropy Initiative and is a project carried out in schools around Perth and Kinross.
YPI is a fantastic project which can help us to raise awareness of our services and helps to fund our services.

We are more than happy to give you as much information as you need to support you with your presentation, including videos, photos of the centre and an outline of what we do.
Here is a video by one of the YPI from a few years ago. They were awarded the final prize for their great presentation and the enthusastic way they spoke about our services.
We would also like to thank all the past YPI school groups who have chosen us as their Charity and a big THANK YOU to the groups that were awarded the prize money for RASAC services.

The ESAS approach is designed to meet the health and wellbeing outcomes of the Curriculum for Excellence and other key frameworks such as Getting It Right For Every Child. ESAS takes a whole school approach, working with staff and students to prevent gender-based violence and to increase confidence and skills in responding to incidents and disclosures of such violence. It aims to positively influence the school culture by fostering a shared, consistent approach to gender-based violence.
