Education & Training

Tri-County S.P.E.A.K.S. Sexual Assault Center is actively working toward educating and engaging the community in the awareness and prevention of sexual assault. We work with middle and high schools, colleges, community organizations, law enforcement, SAPR advocates, prisons and jails, religious organizations, and more.

We encourage you to read our list of current educational presentations, but Tri-County S.P.E.A.K.S. Sexual Assault Center is also able to cater a presentation to your specific needs and audience.  With questions, please contact us through our Contact Form.

We also welcome requests to share more about our organization and services through presentations, community meetings, and tabling events. We believe in partnering with community organizations to combat sexual violence and gladly appreciate invitations to partner.
