PAVE Summit 2012

Thanks to all those who were able to join us at Simmons College for our Peers Against ViolencE youth summit PAVE 2012. It was a great day full of engaging activities.

Activities included youth workshops like “Building Confidence Through Self-Defense” presented by Impact, “Breakups and Cheating 101” presented by Start Strong and “Consent Is Sexy: Going Beyond ‘No means No’” presented by North Shore Rape Crisis Center. In these workshops, youth shared stories of strenght through action and learned skills to help end dating violence in their communities and schools.

The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center also provided a workshop for adults called “Responding to Disclosures for Youth Workers.”
