Sexual Assault Discussion Initiative

About SADI

SADI is the sexual assault discussion initiative.

In 2004, we started the SADI Program to start age appropriate conversations with students about all the building blocks of healthy relationships.

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

Our workshops for students are guided by the learning outcomes for the Manitoba Physical Education and Health Curriculum. We offer workshops for grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 students.

While schools are closed through the pandemic, SADI resources for each grade can be found by clicking on the grade headings below.
