University can be a key place for 2SLGBTQ+ young people to learn knowledge and skills for healthy romantic relationships. SARAVYC has partnered with the McCreary Centre society and their Youth Research Academy to develop, implement, and evaluate a healthy relationship program for young people. The program aims to equip 2SLGBTQIA+ students with the skills to recognize and engage in happy, healthy relationships while reducing the number of 2SLGBTQIA+ individuals who experience relationship violence. The program consists of 6 modules and will be offered weekly to Concordia University students from mid-October until the end of November.
The training helps develop:
How to recognize warning signs in 2SLGBTQ+ relationships;
Skills for healthy romantic relationships and friendships;
Bystander and support strategies for friends in violent relationships
Students have the opportunity to participate in peer led discussions over the six-week training. Peer facilitators trained by our team will lead six one-hour modules covering:
difficult conversations and communication
boundaries and values
Surveys collected before and after the intervention will help SARAVYC evaluate the program’s development.
