Sexual violence is pervasive in every community in Canada. One in three Canadian women will be sexually assaulted during her lifetime. Putting an end to sexual violence requires changes in attitudes and behaviours.

 

You can lay the foundation for those changes!

 

With Ontario educators, White Ribbon created tools to support you as you foster the next generation's ability to engage in healthy relationships, navigate consent, and prevent sexual violence. 

What Can You Do

  • Use the elementary or secondary level Draw the Line scenarios to guide classroom discussions about what students, educators, and the whole school community can do to prevent sexual violence.

 

 

 

  • Consult the Drawing the Line on Sexual Violence guide created by teachers. Use its lesson plans to help your students develop their ability to spot the signs of sexual violence and to step up and help. ​

  • Check out our professional learning opportunities. We have workshops, e-learning, modules and webinars! 

  • Male educators: Be a role model! Check out the It Starts with You – It Stays with Him website and learn more about how you can promote consent, equality, and healthy masculine norms with your students.    

Drawing the Line on Sexual Violence:

A Guide for You!

 White Ribbon is committed to providing you with all the information, tools, tips, and ideas you need to confidently discuss healthy relationships and sexual violence prevention with your students. This is why we partnered with Ontario teachers to create a comprehensive guide that will support you every step of the way.

The guide includes:

  1. An introduction to the topic of sexual violence in Ontario

  2. An introduction to the Draw the Line prevention campaign

  3. Suggestions on how to introduce this topic in the classroom

  4. Lesson plans that draw on expectations in the Ontario curriculum

  5. Additional resources to support you and your students

  

Using the Draw the Line lesson plans, younger students develop the skills they need to:

  • Stand up for themselves and assert their boundaries

  • Show respect for others, including respecting others’ boundaries

  • Trust their instinct and get help when things don’t feel right.

Older students develop the skills they need to:

  • Understand and apply the concept of consent

  • Develop respectful, equitable, and healthy relationships

  • Be active bystanders and intervene safely and effectively to prevent sexual violence.
