Public Education

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 Education & 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. “I’m the Boss of Me” is available to all elementary schools in Saskatoon, and to elementary schools outside of Saskatoon for a fee.

“No is a Full Sentence” Sexualized Violence Education & Prevention Program

“No is a Full Sentence” (NIAFS) is a school-based sexualized violence prevention and education program designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to become more socially aware of the root causes of sexualized violence, the impacts sexualized violence has on survivors and our communities, and how they can individually mitigate this type of violence from continuing.

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.

Educational Presentations

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 charge a nominal fee for these presentations, or we may request an in-service for our staff in return.

We also provide presentations to various student groups (elementary, high school, and post-secondary students) as capacity allows.

Read more about our available presentation topics under “Book a Presentation”.
