Train the Trainer

This intensive, hands-on workshop is designed to give you the skills and knowledge to run the AVP Consent Workshop on your campus. Over the three days, we dive deep into the root causes of sexualized and gender-based violence, develop skills to bust myths about sexualized violence and dismantle the gender binary and learn how to empower workshop participants to see themselves as part of ending rape culture. You will leave with the foundational facilitation skills you need to run these workshops and confidently have nuanced conversations with students on your campus about consent!

We’ve built in lots of time to practice workshop activities and ask questions so that you leave feeling prepared to deliver this material!

The AVP Consent Workshop

This 2-hour workshop is intended to provide folks with the education, skills, and opportunity to understand and practice consent in a supportive and sex positive space. Through activities and discussion we will bust myths about sexualized violence and gender, explore the concept of rape culture and learn about consent (what it is, why it’s required, how to practice it). This workshop offers a chance for us to talk about how we can bring consent into our everyday lives and our relationships with the people we care about!

The Anti-Violence Project (AVP)

Founded in 1996, AVP is the on-campus sexual assault resource centre at the University of Victoria. Funded entirely through student fees, AVP provides free, confidential, non-judgmental peer-based support, resources, and referrals for people of all genders impacted by gender-based and sexualized violence. In addition to running the biweekly Men’s Circle for men and masculine identified folks, AVP offer workshops year round on consent and supporting survivors that are open to campus and community members. 

The UVSS & Let’s Get Consensual

The UVSS is proud to support AVP in delivering this material.

The UVSS is a non-profit society run by students, for students representing all 18,000 undergrads at UVic. . We provide high-quality services, advocacy, and events that enhance the student experience and build a strong campus community.

Let’s Get Consensual is a joint campaign run by the UVSS, UVic, the Anti-Violence Project, and partner organizations across BC. The mission of Let’s Get Consensual is to make campuses safer by addressing rape culture and preventing sexualized violence on campus. The UVSS provides judgment-free consent education and training, and starts and further conversations about prevention, intervention, and consent. From condoms to consent training, we do this in a number of ways: poster and media campaigns, workshops and training, lobbying the University for increased resources, safer sex packets, tabling with free swag, and much more!

We also partner with other on-campus groups to host Sexualized Violence Awareness Week in September, and consent programming and events throughout the year.
