Reducing Sexism and Violence Program for Boys and Girls age 12-18: RSVP is a leadership program that empowers students to play a central role in ending gender-based harassment, abuse, and violence. We use real-life scenarios supplemented by exercises and activities to help students learn to challenge traditional construction of gender roles and intervene as they recognize potentially harmful situations.
RSVP High School leadership workshops are delivered in a series of (2) six-hour sessions to groups of 30-40 male and female students.
Middle School workshops are delivered in a series of (4) one-hour sessions to groups of 15-20 male students.
What others are saying about RSVP:
Multiple 3rd-party evaluations have found RSVP to be highly effective at changing attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs about sexism, sexual harassment, and gender-based violence. Over 75% of respondents showed an increased willingness to intervene as bystanders in gender violent situations.
