Family Services' Rape Prevention Education Program would like to officially announce the new changes occurring to the youth leadership prevention clubs: ¡Los Lideres! Mobilizing Against Sexual Violence, formerly MyVoice/MyStrength, is now one co-ed youth leadership club at Woodlake High School.
¡Los Lideres! Mobilizing Against Sexual Violence focuses on engaging the community of Woodlake against sexual violence to prevent first-time victimization and perpetration, encouraging change to current social norms and attitudes regarding sexual violence. In addition to the name change, a new logo and curriculum is being implemented focusing on bystander intervention. Youth leaders will learn and be able to educate their peers on how to be an active bystander to prevent sexual violence.
Join ¡Los Lideres!
We're currently looking for students to participate for the 2019-2020 school year. The club is open to incoming 9th-12th graders attending Woodlake High School. The club meets once a week during lunch and/or after school. Participants are trained to be peer educators. They often lead presentations and plan fun, informational activities on campus. They also actively participate in community events and leadership opportunities off-campus. Students who want to make a difference at their school and in their community are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact Suemi Perez at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 559-667-3130.
The Sexual Assault Primary Prevention Coalition (SAPPC), a project created by the Rape Prevention Education program, will continue engaging the Woodlake community, alongside student leaders. The SAPPC is comprised of community members: parents, adults, educators, and city officials. Their goal is to help students achieve any necessary policy changes at their school or in their community. Meetings are held four times a year at the Woodlake High School Library. Meetings are open to adults who work or reside in Woodlake (now or in the past). For more information or to receive a reminder for the next meeting, contact Suemi Perez at email@example.com or call/text 559-667-3130.
