Opportunity Council-DVSAS-Prevention & Health Ed. VISTA YR2
The mission of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services (DVSAS) is to support individuals affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and sexual exploitation and to lead the community towards ending these abuses of power. No matter what their circumstances, every person deserves to feel safe, supported and heard. When we talk about individuals affected by domestic violence or sexual assault, we’re talking about every one of us. Our children’s groups are offered during support groups and during the week for drop-in hours. The groups focus on increasing the resiliency skills of children by allowing them play in a safe, child-appropriate environment while increasing social skills, learning positive conflict resolution, and processing their own difficult feelings. Our interactive violence prevention programs are offered at local middle schools, high schools, and youth organizations. These programs help teens understand the dynamics of abusive and healthy relationships, explore consent, and develop confidence in setting boundaries. Elementary Prevention education is a new project that a VISTA member would be able to help pilot - what an exciting time to be involved!
