"The training for teaching youth about sexual consent was informative, with good information about how to explain consent in a concrete way. I especially appreciated learning clearly what to do if I receive disclosure from a young person. Theresa is an approachable, enthusiastic presenter, and she has done a fabulous job of creating a tool that can be used by anyone to help empower youth."
-Raina Gardner, creator of GEM (|Girls Empowerment Movement", Mentor, Educator, Doula
"I felt the [teacher] training was well executed, delivered and received. It was an informative morning that I thoroughly enjoyed and took a lot away from it."
-Michelle Postnikoff; BCYC, Coordinator at Chrissy's Place Women's Centre
"Theresa's workshop compiles a compelling array of resources to highlight the "why's" and "how's" of teaching consent. This teacher training would be useful for anyone who works with youth."
-Axel Mcgown, Youth Program Coordinator at Nelson District Women's Centre
"Thank you so much for coming to our grade 8 class at the Nelson Waldorf School Theresa! Your knowledge and stable presence provided a safe space for students to ask questions and listen with ease. You created fun and creative ways for students to understand the importance of consent. I feel consent really landed with the students. Instead of it being just an idea of what should be, it became a statement. I appreciated your take on sharing with students how there is no recipe – no right or wrong way of how to engage in sexual intercourse as long as its filled with consent and an open dialogue. I appreciated your visual representations and the way you answered student’s anonymous questions in such a clear, matter of fact way. It was so great to see how students didn’t laugh, and rather, truly respected you and the material you taught."
-April Lavine, Grade 8 Teacher, Nelson Waldorf School
