The Sexual Assault Assistance Program believes prevention is possible. Prevention work is a foundational piece of our center and a key part of our mission to end gender-based violence. All of our prevention work is research-informed, evidence-based, and culturally relevant to best serve our communities. SAAP uses a public health approach to our work, and focuses on promoting protective factors that decrease the risk of sexual violence.

Prevention Education in the Community

Our SAPE (Sexual Assault Prevention Educator) provides free prevention education presentations to local schools and community youth programs, as well as professional education about sexual violence, bystander intervention, sexual assault and harassment, intimate partner violence, and domestic violence to law enforcement, health care, social services and human resource professionals.

We truly believe that a violence-free society is attainable, and SAAP is committed to breaking the cycle through prevention education.
