Over 20% of undergraduate females experience sexual assault. Give your daughter the tools she needs to stay safe at college and beyond! We’re excited to partner with Esteem to offer this dynamic and interactive virtual workshop featuring skills for avoidance, deterrence, and resistance of physical and verbal assault.
Designed to empower young women heading to college, the workshop is led by a warm, engaging, experienced female instructor and assisted by a male instructor who will help act out real life scenarios to prepare young women to react appropriately if challenges arise. Your daughter will learn and practice essential self-defense moves – as well as awareness and assertiveness strategies to stay safe. Training includes:
