We need VOLUNTEERS like you to help keep the tradition! To sign up to be an I-Guide click on the link: http://housing.illinois.edu/ If you have any questions, please email email@example.com
Community Health 199B: Campus Acquaintance Rape Education (CARE)
Do you want to learn more about a social problem that is very pertinent to students on campus? Do you like classes where you can discuss topics in-depth with your peers in a safe, supportive environment? Do you want to get involved and find a way to make a difference? In this course, students will examine sexual violence in the college environment, its various institutional and cultural contexts, and how to support survivors, as well as develop practical skills for leading peer workshops for the FYCARE (First Year Campus Acquaintance Rape Education) program. During the course, students can apply to be FYCARE facilitators for future semesters.
ICARE is a 90-minute bystander intervention workshop offered to established groups and organizations on campus. In this highly interactive workshop, students will dialogue with peers in their organization about consent and sexually disrespectful behavior, understand what helps people intervene in sexually disrespectful situations, set a group norm in which sexually disrespectful behavior is recognized as a problem and active bystander behavior is promoted, and learn a variety of intervention skills. The workshop is also highly customizable and is built specifically for group members to examine their values and how they can work together to end sexual violence.
If your group or organization would like to request an ICARE workshop, please fill out the following form: http://goo.gl/forms/jPnegDeoGG. The ICARE coordinator will get in contact with you to set up a workshop.
If you have any questions, please contact Molly McLay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
