The Start Strong program consists of multi-session programs for adolescents in middle and high school. We use an evidence-informed primary prevention model to empower students to stand against sexual violence in their schools and communities. The sessions build on one another and are not designed to be offered separately. Programs meet North Carolina standards for healthful living. Conversations that start with learning your own bodily autonomy and boundaries eventually shift to how these ideas apply to treating and respecting others. All programs are available in English and Spanish.
