Preparing youth for strong, healthy and respectful relationships

In 2004 we established our organization as an educational resource for schools and service providers in north-eastern Manitoba. This educational division of our organization is called SADI. Through our educational SADI projects we address the needs of victims of sexual violence, relationship violence and family violence.

Ultimately, our workshops address the root causes of relationship violence.

SADI 2017-2018 is our current school project. Our age appropriate workshops for students are guided by the learning outcomes for the Manitoba Physical Education and Health Curriculum. This year we are offering workshops for grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 students.

Grade 6 students participate in three interactive workshops:

  • Workshop 1: Healthy Relationships and Personal Boundaries
  • Workshop 2: Media – Deconstructing Advertising
  • Workshop 3: The Responsible Bystander: Face to Face and Online

Grade 8 students participate in three interactive workshops:

  • Workshop 1: Healthy Relationships/Healthy Self Esteem

Grade 10 students participate in three interactive workshops:
