Preventing sexual violence and sexual harassment at Berkeley requires all community members to be involved in discussions about consent, healthy relationships, power dynamics, and respectful communication. One of the most powerful and effective ways to reach students for these critical conversations is peer-to-peer education.
Graduate Student SVSH Educators are graduate student leaders who engage other graduate students in meaningful dialogue about anti-violence, social justice, anti-oppression, and a culture that supports survivors. They work collaboratively with other Graduate Student SVSH Educators, CARE Advocacy and Prevention Program staff, and other campus partners. Graduate Student SVSH Educators receive training to prepare them to provide outreach activities, act as an ambassador for the CARE Advocacy and Prevention Program at Graduate Division and Graduate Assembly events, etc., and present workshops to student organizations, student communities, and other campus departments.
Small stipends are available for presentation preparation and delivery.
