SafeBAE’s 3rd Annual

Summer Activist Institute:

BAES by the BAY! 2024

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications to attend our third annual Summer Activist Institute, in partnership with the World Childhood Foundation USA.

WHO: 20 US high school students (rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors in the 2024-25 school year) who are actively engaged in sexual violence prevention & consent education activism and want the opportunity and support to do more.

WHAT: 3 days of intensive (but also SUPER fun) activist leadership training as a sexual assault prevention advocate.  

  • We will have guest speakers from activist organizations throughout the US, surprise guests, so much swag, and fun activities in greater Portland!
  • Participants will work in break-out sessions to envision their ideas for continuing their activism work during the 2023-24 school year.  
  • Each participant will receive help and support in creating a proposal to submit to SafeBAE for grant funding of their work in the year ahead.

WHEN: June 24-27, 2024

WHERE: the beautiful beachfront campus of Southern Maine Community College in South Portland, Maine
