Sexual Consent Education Before Adulthood

Presentation

Abstract

Recent news and media attention have brought to light the city of Missoula’s ongoing struggle with sexual assault. Unfortunately Missoula is not unique in this regard, as sexual assault and consent are universal human rights issues. Our goal is to address these on both a local and a global level by creating a culturally adaptive educational model that informs students about safe and healthy sexual consent practices.

We will be partnering with a local nonprofit organization National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) to train youth leaders with the curriculum that we create. NCBI has established a leadership development program that trains student leaders to help run the workshops around the state that address matters of social justice. We aim to add a sexual consent education module to NCBI’s already successful curriculum.

Through this partnership we will develop a training module addressing issues around sexual consent and providing tools and knowledge for students approaching the age of consent. This module will be inclusive enough to be easily replicated and adapted to various institutions, communities and cultures. Through the use of the module, we hope to empower students around the globe by providing them with an understanding of sexual consent rooted in respect and human rights.
