“Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world.”
REACH has been providing Adolescent Awareness and Risk Reduction
programs in middle and high schools throughout Oxford County since
the late 1980s. Children ages 12 to 17 years of age account for
approximately a third of all reported rapes, with teens 16 to 19
years of age being three and a half times more likely than the
general population to be the victims of rape or sexual assault.
For several years now, REACH has been providing anti-bullying programs in elementary schools. In 2007, REACH began presenting personal safety programs, providing elementary aged students with tools they can use to stay safer regarding sexual abuse.
Here is a sample of the educational presentations provided by
- What Sexual Harassment Is and Isn’t.
- Sexual Harassment – Flirting or Hurting?
