We are interested in proposals from local or national/big or small organizations throughout the US, targeting high school students. We are looking for a wide variety of topics that are related to our mission and youth leadership in sexual violence prevention.
We will be prioritizing youth presenters (in partnership with adult presenters) from around the US and are seeking presenting topics including:
Sexual violence risk as it related to foster youth
Sexual violence and suicide
Sexual violence in marginalized communities
Dating after sexual violence
Sexual violence among LGBTQIA+
Sexual violence in the media
Parents of survivors
We will also be inviting youth to a round table discussion on youth leadership in preventing sexual violence. #HowToOrganize
Submissions will be open from November 12-December 11th 5PM EST. SUBMIT HERE
Speakers will receive an honorarium for their presentation and partner recognition across our summit promotional materials.
We are gathering a group of youth leaders who are interested in leading this project for the 2021 Summit. They will have the support of SafeBAE staff throughout the process. Each committee member will be offered community service hours and/or school credit (but it will be up to the student to seek school support for this), letters of recommendation, and recognition on all materials and SafeBAE website (with bio and pic) as well as a stipend for their commitment.
Committee members will oversee and help to build the entire summit and will be reporting the team’s achievements directly to SafeBAE’s staff and local partners.
Work commitments include:
Planning breakout sessions and possible remote activities for the Summit
Identifying local & national organizations to present at the summit
Outlining a schedule for the Summit days
Help to moderate sessions on zoom
Help to promote/recruit attendees for the Summit
Help to research school guidance counselors, health teachers, and administrators to encourage them to send students for class credit
