Impact, Empower & Engage Summer Camp
We are sorry to announce that August’s Camp has been cancelled.
The Fort Bend Women’s Center and its Violence Prevention Team are thrilled to offer free summer camps for high school students, grades 9th-12th. The programs are based on the positive approach that adolescents have the skills and strengths to affect social change within their communities. In fact, teens are the experts on their peers and have the power to empower change through positive peer leadership and role-modeling. The camps will utilize the Expect Respect SafeTeens Leadership Program, an interactive training in interpersonal violence prevention and peer leadership for youth, ages 14 to 18. The 8 module curriculum incorporates educational materials, video presentations, handouts and activities designed to facilitate learning about bullying, sexual harassment, sexual assault, healthy and abusive dating relationships, the warning signs of abuse, and practical tools for bystander intervention. Facilitators provide structure, information and guidance while empowering youth to develop their own awareness projects.
The camps will include a 1/2 day of violence prevention education and 1/2 day of volunteer service in our Richmond PennyWise Resale Center. Space will be very limited so participants must turn in an application.
