Be More than a Bystander Workshop
Although this workshop is not open to the wider Camosun Community at this time, we want to acknowledge the Electrical Trades Foundation program for hosting a Be More than a Bystander Workshop for its students as a part of Camosun’s Sexualized Violence Awareness Week. We acknowledge the staff, faculty and students of this program for taking an important and active role in the prevention of sexual violence.
Sexual Violence Prevention Resources
Ever felt unclear on what consent actually means? Unsure how to set a safe boundary? Not sure what being an active bystander means? Uncertain how to support someone who has been impacted by sexual violence?
We invite you to check out Camosun’s Sexual Violence Support and Education and take some time to watch these short helpful videos and reflect on how you can participate in creating a safe and respectful Camosun community.
