Consent Workshops

Our consent workshops run at least once a month from September to April. The workshop is two hours long and will be held at the University of Victoria. They are free of charge, open to students and community members, and have a no late-comer policy.

Consent Workshops 

Find Support

Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. When you are asking for help about an issue that might feel really private, confusing and/or embarrassing, it is important to get support that is non-judgmental, without pressure, and informed.

Supporting a Survivor Workshops

This workshop provides some foundations for supporting survivors of sexualized violence. Throughout the workshop we will discuss different approaches and tools that can be used when supporting someone. Workshops are offered several times throughout the fall and winter semesters, are open to everyone, and are free of charge.

The Men’s Circle

Really really appreciate this piece by Kai Cheng Thom on the uncomfortable reliance on punitive "justice" in this moment of #MeToo and mass revelations of sexual abuse:

Whoa what a month! We did: a referendum, 3 Men's Circles, 5 workshops, 20 support sessions (905 min and a record # of sessions). Thanks again for supporting our work with a Yes in the referendum. We're stoked to be able to keep up this pace with more staffing hours!! #uvic #uvss
