Public Education

The Sexual Assault Survivors’ Centre Sarnia-Lambton is proud to offer all of our public education programs FREE OF CHARGE.

Public education is important for promoting safety. Increased awareness on the issues of sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, and sexual harassment allows people to develop safety skills that enable them to identify dangerous situations, develop strategies for dealing with potentially unsafe situations, and gain knowledge of available resources and options that are available to them if they experience sexual assault, sexual harassment or are a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

At the Sexual Assault Survivor’s Centre Sarnia-Lambton’s Public Education is achieved through:

  • Workshops
  • Trainings
  • Seminars
  • Presentations
  • School Programs
  • Lending Library
  • Handouts, Posters, and Brochures

All public education provided by the Centre is designed to empower individuals by increasing self-awareness and awareness in our community. Our public educators employ writing exercises, brainstorming as a way of engaging folks and encouraging sharing within a safe and non-judgemental environment.

All public education is tailored to suite your needs, interests, group size, age range, location and type of event. We also offer flexible availability of days or evenings.

Educational Topics

In-School Programs and Educational Presentations

At the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Centre we believe that education around safety, trusting your instincts and boundaries should begin at an early age. We are proud to have working relationships with various schools in our community which allow us to have fun, interactive conversations with children as young as 4 about these messages.

School programs are tailored to the specific needs of a teacher, or age group and are designed to be interactive and promote fun and educational learning. Smart Board activities can be included when requested.
