Have you held a conversation with your child or student on sexual assault and dating violence? Do they know the basics of sexual assault, such as the cycle of violence and behaviors that can place them and their friends at greater risk at being victims? If you answered “No” to any of these questions, The Hive Community urges you sign your student up for a “Bee” Equipped Workshop.
According to the most recent college campus study on sexual assault in 2012, there were nearly 4,000 reports of forcible sex offenses on college campuses nationwide. But college is not where it begins. One of out of four females will be sexually assaulted by age 18. Also, one out of six American adult women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. For young women to reach their full potential as leaders, they must also be equipped to handle every area in their life, especially personal safety.
That’s where the Hive Community Circle steps in. The “Bee” Equipped Workshop is an educational awareness program for female high school upperclassman and college students that aims to heighten their awareness of sexual assault. The Daughters of Destiny Ministry has partnered with the Hive Community Circle to provide this interactive, 2-hour session provides participants with the basic knowledge and understanding of sexual assault, risky behaviors that can increase victimization and victims’ rights and local services. The workshop will also teach the students tools for living a healthy campus and social life. After completing the session, students will receive a certificate and be ready to stand up against sexual assault and reduce their chances of victimization.
