Prevention & Education
WEAVE is committed to breaking the cycle of violence by educating the community to better understand the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault.
We offer outreach presentations to local schools, teen groups, faith groups, businesses, neighborhood groups, law enforcement, healthcare professionals and any other interested parties in Sacramento County. You may request a presentation by clicking here to fill out a request form.
The majority of WEAVE’s services are offered out of the main Counseling Center at 1900 K Street in downtown Sacramento.
WEAVE also spearheads campaigns, events, and activities for Sacramento County for Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April and Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October. These awareness month campaigns include activities like Jeans for Justice Day and Women Take Back the Night.
WEAVE was selected to develop and implement the Early Identification of Commercially Sexually Exploited Children (CSEC) Training Program for the state of California. The project is funded through a grant from the California Office of Emergency Services.
As summer winds down, many of you are sending a child off to college. Whether it is your own child or a youth you care about, your emotions are likely mixed. Sexual assault is part of the college experience for too many youth with 23% of females and 5% of males experiencing sexual assault during their college years.
WEAVE’s Teen Education Program provides presentations in middle schools, high schools, and various teen groups in Sacramento County. The program educates youth between 12 and 18 years old about dating and sexual violence.
As WEAVE’s name has become increasingly familiar in the community, requests for our presence at fairs has increased as well. We are grateful that so many organizations value WEAVE’s participation.
WEAVE offers an array of educational options tailored to different professional groups in Sacramento County. WEAVE has worked in partnership with medical professionals, law enforcement, homeless service providers, private businesses, other community educators, and many more to build knowledge and capacity in regards to domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex trafficking.
