Public Education Program

We believe that prevention, education, and awareness are key to ending the cycle of violence against women and children. Our public education program provides free training and workshops to schools, service providers, and community groups about a range of topics relating to violence against women:

    • Healthy Relationships
    • Dating Violence
    • How Domestic Violence Affects Children
    • Gender and the Media
    • How Neighbours, Friends and Families can help
    • LCIH Programs & Services

For teachers:

We offer dynamic, engaging workshops to youth about healthy relationships, dating violence, and gender stereotypes. We are very flexible and can shape our presentations and discussions to meet your needs—one class or two, twenty students or sixty—do not hesitate to contact us. We can also shape our workshops to meet your curriculum needs. We believe that all youth have the power to end the cycle of violence and we encourage them to model healthy relationships.

Note: If you are a teacher, check out our new “Teachers Do Make a Difference” series, which explores the effects of woman abuse on children, what to do when you expect a student is at risk, and anti-violence work in the classroom.

For Service Providers:

We provide training about our programs, services, protocols, and additional education about abuse and gender-based violence and their effects on women and children of all ages. We also regularly offer training to volunteers in caring roles.

For Community Groups:

Learn more about how neighbours, friends, and families can safely help in an abusive or violent situation. Women, men, and youth are all a part of the solution.
