👩⚖️Empowering Students Through Legal Education Story
The Schools Consent Project delivered insightful hour-long workshops to all our incredible students. These sessions covered a range of crucial topics, including the legal definition of consent, identifying consent, bystander intervention, ages of consent, responding to disclosures, and avenues to seek help.
The workshops were not your typical lectures—they engaged students through a series of fun and interactive games and exercises, gently challenging misconceptions and fostering safer, healthier interactions.
By adopting a legal approach, The Consent Project addressed subjects that might otherwise be challenging or taboo. The aim? To give our young minds agency, ensuring they fully understand the laws surrounding sex and consent. Knowledge is power, and these workshops empower our students to make informed and sensible decisions.
