The New Hampshire Says NO MORE project was excited to hear that Proctor Academy was seeking support from their local crisis center, the Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire, to learn about sexual assault and dating abuse, find ways to begin discussions with students, and lay the groundwork for new prevention efforts on campus.
The Academy plans to continue seeking support from educators at their local crisis center as they implement educational programming and identify avenues to openly discuss the issues of consent, respect and healthy relationships among students.
"...shaping school culture does not occur during one amazing evening of connection at the start of the school year. It happens over time as learning, talking about, and modeling healthy relationships becomes who we are as a school community.The work we need to do is real. It is challenging. And it can be uncomfortable at times. But it is the most important work we do as educators, and it is the greatest gift we can give the young men and women whose parents have entrusted us with their children." - Scott Allenby
Our thanks to Proctor Academy for supporting this important prevention work and their local domestic and sexual violence advocacy programs.
