SHARPP’s prevention education trainings are informed by the CDC’s recommendations on sexual violence prevention and research-based best practices. The goals of these programs are to build skills, increase knowledge, and ultimately change attitudes and beliefs that influence the behaviors of participants. We deliver these programs to residential halls, academic classrooms, Fraternity & Sorority chapters, student organizations, department meetings, campus recreation teams, athletic teams, etc. Prevention education trainings need about two weeks’ notice and can be customized for individual audiences.

Just click the, Design Your Own option, tell us a little about what you're looking for and then a SHARPP staff member will connect with you to finalize details.
It is also recommended to pair our programming in your hall or chapter house with our bulletin board messaging and marketing materials (see below). Many of our programs have complementary visuals that you can use to reinforce our messaging. An excellent way to pair these would be to have a board be up the weeks leading into or after a training.
Please note: We typically request two weeks notice.

They are often set up in hall lobbies and conversations are had as people enter and exit the hall.
