School Based Education and Prevention Services

YWCA staff can make presentations to students at all educational levels, from preschool to university, on age-appropriate topics related to health, safety and sexuality. Topics for young children include information on good and bad touching, taking good care of one’s body, safety rules, and healthy lifestyles. Presentations for older students include topics on understanding healthy relationships and the dynamics of interpersonal violence and sexual assault and how each person addresses violence if it occurs in their lives.

Our staff uses curricula that have been developed specifically for Hawaii, and are used throughout the state. Presentations are offered to schools at no charge.

Community Based Presentations and Trainings

Is your community group interested in hearing a presentation or receiving a training on topics such as sexual harassment, responding to domestic violence or sexual assault? Our staff has provided education and training to audiences including church groups, Rotary clubs, PTA groups, employers, police departments, and educator groups. We can tailor our presentation to meet your needs.
