Let’s Talk About It & Be on the Safer Side: Youth Sexual Education
This workshop aims to provide youth with the information and tools necessary for making empowering decisions about their own sexual health, exploration of the concepts of sexuality and the role it plays and the exploration of choices regarding sexuality.
It’s Never Your Fault, Without a “YES”, It’s a “NO”: Sexual Assault
Sexual activity does not just refer to sex, it includes kissing, hugging, making out, cuddling, and touching someone’s body in a sexual manner. On the topic ( matter), (issue) of sexual activity and sexual intercourse/ sexual intimacy, you have the right to decide when, where and how the action takes place. Before any sexual activity or sexual intimacy takes place (occurs)/ (is entered into), individual consent or voluntary verbal expression of “yes” is not only necessary but also of prime importance. Everyone needs to consent, or another way to think about consent is that only yes means yes.
So, how do you know if someone wants to make out or have sex? Simple! You have got to ask! You will have to ask. If the other party/ individual fails to verbally respond, or say nothing indicates that the answer is No. In other words, anything other than, Yes, means No.
Digital Youth: Power and Danger of Internet and Social Media Platforms
The focus of the workshop is shifting the trends in on-line culture through rights-based education. The workshop aims to create through rights-based education an online culture that is safe, accessible and user positive.
We are shifting online culture through rights-based education for youth. We strongly believe youth is vitally important in bringing about this shift. We aim to open up paths or avenues to dialogue with youth regarding their rights and responsibilities online, to carefully think about the appearance of violence and discrimination in online spaces, and to clarify/ straighten out myths about the laws that apply to their online lives.
No school Jitters: Say “NO” to Bullying
Many youths have a good idea of what bullying is because they see it every day! Bullying is an issue that can take place anywhere in the world. No matter where you live, where you go to school or how popular you might be, you have witnessed, caused or been the victim of aggression from your peers. It is our hope that this workshop will increase awareness about bullying and how it affects some individuals on a daily basis. As youth and adult members of BCRC, we are delighted to have the opportunity to promote the prevention and awareness of bullying. We hope that you will find this information and resources useful and that it can assist in bringing about an end and stamping out the bullying epidemic present in our communities.
It is OK to Speak Up: Know Your Right in Workplace
Employment relationships create a spectrum of responsibilities and legal rights that can result in exploitation and discrimination. For youths, asserting their rights can be challenging and sometimes seem impossible. This workshop provides a concrete understanding of youth legal rights at work and asserts youth rights in the context of complex power dynamics.
