RPE delivers specialist sexual violence prevention programmes that teach young people about rape and sexual violence. The programmes are tailored to provide young people with skills around respectful relating, personal safety, bystander intervention, identifying and dealing with potentially harmful behaviour and help seeking.
I am very impressed by the work that RPE continues to do with our Year 10 and 11 students. I have observed the workshops firsthand and I believe that RPE’s youth education team handle extremely sensitive topics in a very appropriate way. They engage students and create a safe learning environment for the students to access difficult but vital information. School Counsellor
This year more than 4,500 year 10 and 11 students across greater Auckland will participate in one of our youth programmes. The need for our work is high; in every school in which we work there is an average of eight disclosures of sexual violence.
I feel more confident now what to do in situations where I am forced to do something I don’t want to do. Young person
