Building Safe & Caring Communities Through Support & Education

Pace is currently working to make our Public Education programming accessible and available in online formats. Please contact the Public Education Coordinator if you are seeking educational programming for your school, agency, or community group and we will do our best to accommodate those requests.

Education and understanding are key elements in prevention. At Pace, it is our goal to educate the communities in our region by providing accurate information and resources using a combination of tools: lectures, PowerPoint presentations, group discussions, media resources, and handouts. The purpose of the Public Awareness Program is to affect attitudes and behaviors surrounding sexual abuse, sexual assault, and trauma in a way that reduces these issues and their impact.

Public Awareness Programs include a variety of informational presentations, which range in focus from educating children and youth about childhood sexual abuse and sexual violence, to providing developmentally delayed and/or disabled individuals and their caregivers with educational supports to recognize healthy boundaries, safe and unsafe actions, and sexual harassment.

Public Awareness Presentations are based on agency and/or community needs and can be tailored to suit the requesting audience.
