Children & Youth Programs

CCASA offers education and training opportunities for children, youth, caregivers or professionals working with children and youth.

Education is imperative to make sure that children, youth and the primary educators in their lives all have accurate information. Our programs teach children and youth about body autonomy, healthy relationships and about abusive behaviours. We know that children ultimately cannot stop sexual violence from occurring as those choosing the behaviours are making their own choices but children can be empowered through education.

We give them the tools and vocabulary to talk to trusted adults if they need help. We develop skills needed to become agents of change to create safe spaces for themselves and their peers. We provide training to caregivers and professionals working with children and youth to ensure everyone has the same information and vocabulary when it comes to talking about sexual violence. We work to enhance the understanding of sexual violence and help to start these impactful conversations.

The program is multi-session and includes teacher/staff training, a parent/caregiver training, informative resources, follow-up communication and continuous evaluation.

Birch Grove

6-week program, 1.5 hours per session

NEW YOUTH PROGRAM, Birch Grove – addressing the roots of sexual violence and planting seeds of change. In this multi-session program, youth learn about various forms of sexual violence and examine the attitudes and beliefs that are at the root of it. The latter half of the program focuses on envisioning a world without sexual violence and recognizing the role we each play in creating change.

Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their own attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, learn the skills to support a friend who has experienced sexual violence, and the various ways to be an advocate for social change. Birch Grove can be provided in junior and senior high schools or any youth-serving agency (such as a youth group).

INCLUDES: training opportunity for school / agency staff, as well as parents and caregivers.

Workshops

We have workshops suitable for parents, caregivers and professionals that are interested in learning more about child sexual abuse and sexual violence that focus on how to support and respond to disclosures.
