Dear NCJW|LA Community,
Change the Talk has been a special program here at NCJW|LA since the summer of 2015, when a group of high school students researched and developed the first workshop script to educate their peers on consent and sexual violence prevention. To date, Change the Talk has trained over 250 teen leaders who have educated over 6,500 high school students with its innovative and interactive workshops.
We are excited to announce that Change the Talk is moving on to become a program of SafeBAE, a survivor-founded, student-led national organization whose mission is to end sexual assault among middle and high school students.
We will miss having Change the Talk as a part of our team, but we know that the program will thrive in a national setting where it can reach far more teens around the country. The move will be effective beginning July 1, 2020.
We are so thankful for all of the good work that Change the Talk has done for teens throughout Los Angeles and look forward to seeing the great strides the program will continue to make for years to come.
