Youth Violence Prevention Program (YVPP) - For Middle and High School Youth

Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands developed the Youth Violence Prevention Curriculum© for middle and high school-aged youth. Utilizing the principals of effective prevention programming, this 6 lesson curriculum covers a wide range of topics geared toward reducing risk and preventing sexual and relationship violence. Trained facilitators use interactive activities, videos, songs, discussion, and lectures to teach youth about gender violence in the media, healthy boundary-setting and communication, on-line safety, dating violence, sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Each lesson lasts approximately an hour to 1 ½ hours and lessons are usually scheduled once/week.
