Education & Outreach

In an effort to ensure safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, all workshops are currently only offered virtually. At this time, workshops are not offered in person. Thank you for understanding.

 

 

Education and Outreach Services:

CCS Prevention programs use education as a tool to break the cycle of violence and prevent violence before it happens. CCS believes that violence is preventable: violence is a learned behavior and therefore can be unlearned. Our prevention programs strive to empower participants with the skills and tools they need to prevent violence in their relationships and communities. 

Prevention & Community Engagement Specialists are available to provide educational programs and workshops for professional audiences, youth groups, correctional facilities, schools K-12, colleges and universities, and the general public. Most programs are FREE, age-appropriate, interactive, can be done in a series, and are available in both English and Spanish.
