As a non-profit, charitable, organization dedicated to taking a leadership role in responding to sexualized violence in our community, SSAIC is proud to deliver the following public education initiatives in and around the community of Saskatoon.
“I’m the Boss of Me” – Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Program
“I’m the Boss of Me” is a puppet show presentation and lesson plan program for Grade 4 students that engages students in conversation on this difficult but ever-important topic. Students learn what sexual abuse is (along with physical, emotional and cyber abuse), why it abuse is wrong, that abuse is never their fault, not to keep it a secret, and how to get help if they need it. Currently “I’m the Boss of Me” is only available to schools in Saskatoon.

Supporting Survivors of Sexualized Violence Training
SSAIC’s newly created training was designed to train professionals and community members alike to receive disclosures and support survivors in a compassionate and trauma-informed way. Provided in two different formats to fit anyone’s needs, SST will equip as many people as possible with the tools to best communicate, understand, and guide survivors to their next steps to begin their healing.

SSAIC offers virtual and live presentations for agencies, organizations, or groups that support individuals who are at an increased risk of sexualized violence due to addictions, poverty, racism, disability, their status as immigrants or refugees, members of the LGBTQ2S community, and any other vulnerability factor. We can easily pop in during a staff meeting, or do a separately scheduled presentation.
We do not charge our peer organizations for these presentations. However, we may request an in-service for our staff in return.
Our presentations are a good fit for client groups, staff in-services, professional development opportunities, post-secondary students and classes, and more.
