The EPIC Project

The EPIC Cover 2

The EPIC Project is a multilevel, structured sexual violence prevention series geared at empowering students to become agents of change. Students are challenged to “Be EPIC” or in other words to Be Educated, Pro-Active, Influential and Changed when faced with the issues of bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault. Throughout The EPIC Project middle school and high school students will be encouraged to consider the key components of Primary Prevention Theory through activities, group discussion and other means of interactive learning. By the end of the EPIC Project students will have been introduced to the key concepts of respect and equality. Additionally, students will learn practical skills, such as bystander intervention techniques, to decrease exposure to bullying, sexual harassment and sexual assault, thus developing healthy, abuse-free relationships and communities.

Level #1: This level is offered as a one-time presentation.

Level #2: This level consists 2 options – A 2 presentation set or a 4 presentation set. These sessions can be offered throughout the school year or consecutively based on availability. These presentations are offered to a single classroom of students at a time.

Level #3: This level consists of multiple sessions typically offered over a 6 -10 week period. Level 3 is offered in a small group atmosphere to a select group of approximately 8-15 students, depending on the age.

Research has shown that the more times a student is exposed to prevention materials, the greater the change. Therefore we recommend scheduling at Level 2 or above.
