Community Education

The Center offers programs for both raising awareness about sexual violence and teaching prevention skills. We teach youth and adults:

  • what to do if they experience violence.
  • how to recognize warning signs of violence in order to prevent it.
  • how to avoid bullying and cyber-bullying others.
  • how to safely intervene as active bystanders.

 

Our programs are age-appropriate. We provide programs to youth and adults with disabilities. And we offer programs in Spanish.

If you would like to request a program for your after-school program, neighborhood, church, business, or other group, please contact us at info@ocrcc.org or 919-968-4647. Please see below for information about our programs. We strive to provide programs free of charge to local schools and organizations. However, for professional trainings and for requests from outside of Orange County, there may be an associated fee. If you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for, please contact us. We can work with you to create a program that fits your needs.
