As you sadly, most likely know, 1 in 4 women will be raped in their lifetime and 1 in 3 girls will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Rape is the most costly of all crimes. Dealing with the aftermath of sexual violence is an expansive and expensive endeavor.
Peer Solutions was founded in 1996 to prevent the root causes of sexual violence before they begin. Our Executive Director, Founder and survivor has worked 34 years through research and practice learning about what strategies maximize impact. She has served on the National Sexual Violence Resource Center’s Advisory Board since 2011.
Our program, STAND & SERVE is a positive youth development and leadership best practice. We are now undergoing a rigorous evaluation with support from 8 researchers representing 5 Universities with a focus on developing a model anyone can use, determining cost effectiveness and widespread dissemination.
LOVE IS ON – G2BG STYLE IS HOW WE DO IT!
STAND & SERVE student, family and community partners cultivate Safety, Equality and Respect (SER) as norms to end the root causes of sexual violence including Oppression, Silence/Denial and Normalized Harm (OSN) before they begin. We do this through G2BG – The Guts To Be Good, 5 things we can all do to make the world a better place with Everyone, Everywhere, Every Day. This is about love for self, others and the planet!
