Violence prevention starts with you. In your home, your community, and your schools.

By sending agency leaders into schools, faith communities, service organizations and businesses, 360 Communities raises awareness about teen dating violence, bullying, date/acquaintance rape, sexual assault and harassment, and the effects and prevalence of domestic violence. 360 Communities advocates also teach younger students about peacemaking and conflict resolution, developing skills that stop violence before it starts, teaching boys to value and respect women and girls, and encouraging men to become our allies in ending violence against women.

Community education presentations typically last one hour and often include videos and role playing that relates to the topic. For more information about this 360 Communities’ violence prevention education service and for information on specific presentations available, call 360 Communities Violence Prevention Education at (651) 244-9826 or request a speaker using the form below.
