Changing the Conversation.
We believe that change starts with one person and we encourage everyone in our community to start the conversations with their family members, children, coworkers and friends. Let the change begin with you.

WCA staff are available to do in-person presentations or schedule virtual presentations over ZOOM or other digital platforms for travel, safety and health considerations. However, you can also access all our Digital Toolkit here complete with all of our presentation formatted with slides with voice memos and video presentations and handouts.

Awareness Months/Days and Community Engagement Campaigns Throughout the Year

WCA Prevention Program

The Vision of the WCA is to foster a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships. Our Prevention Program is critical to making this vision a reality for our community. The goal of the Prevention Program is to change the attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that contribute to violence.

Classroom Presentations
Presentations can cover a variety of topics including emotional intelligence, social norms and external influences, building healthy relationships, recognizing the red flags of dating abuse, helping a friend and available resources. Presentations can be one-time or span multiple days for deeper understanding.

Small-Group Facilitation
Multi-week small group sessions can be beneficial for specific groups or to cover in-depth topics. Smaller groups and multi-week facilitation tends to be more productive as they allow for establishing rapport, building trust and developing skills.

Parent Education Nights
Teaching parents to recognize signs of dating abuse and how to talk with their teens about it.

Community Education Nights
Provide information to the community about domestic abuse and the services of the WCA.

Teacher and School Faculty Training
Potential topics could include The Impact of Domestic Abuse on Children, Trauma-Sensitive Responses for Schools. Can be provided as a PLC option with district approval.

In Their Shoes (8th grade and up)
In Their Shoes’ is a scenario-based training designed to help participants talk about what dating is like for today’s teens – from their perspective. (Designed to follow educational presentation)

Education for Student Groups (athletics, clubs, etc.)
Informational Brochures and Handouts

Youth REP Program
The WCA Youth Relationship Education Program or Youth REPs is a program focusing on engagement, outreach and education to youth in our community. These enterprising young people help us figure out the best way to engage them in our mission and understand the importance of healthy relationships. We seek participation from passionate, creative individuals who are not afraid to speak their mind and are willing to commit to being leaders. Application for the program year typically opens up in late Spring. Click here or contact prevention@wcaboise.org for more information.

WCA Outreach Program

Here are some ways in which the WCA contributes to the vision of fostering a community that thrives in safe and healthy relationships.

Educational Presentations
Through our outreach presentations, we work to educate the public about the characteristics of domestic abuse, sexual assault, the impact of domestic violence in the workplace and healthy relationships. We believe that education is key to breaking the cycle of domestic abuse and sexual assault in our community. Contact outreach@wcaboise.org for more information.

Outreach Tabling Events
We bring our outreach table to events including health fairs, community resource fairs, volunteer info nights, and conferences. Let us know if you have an event you’d like us to come to, and we will bring materials targeted to your audience. We also have outreach kits “To Go” — so if just want the materials, we will take your order and prepare the kit for you. Our outreach materials include WCA Brochures and shoe cards, information about volunteer opportunities and events, information about WCA services, and branded items for your attendees.

Tables are run by friendly, trained outreach volunteers and staff members. If you’re interested in becoming an outreach volunteer, please attend a Tour and fill out a volunteer application. We’ll contact you to schedule a training session as positions become available.

Would you like brochures (English or Español) or shoe cards (English or Español) to display in your office, house of worship, or community center? Contact the Outreach Team to order these free resources.

For printable resources, logos and more, visit our Marketing Materials page.

Community Education Nights
Provide information to the community about domestic abuse and the services of the WCA.

In Her Shoes
‘In Her Shoes’ is a scenario-based training designed to help participants view an abusive relationship from the victim’s perspective.

Help us build engagement and spread the word.

The safety of our staff, clients and community is of the utmost importance to us. While we will gladly attend your event and/or present to your group, our staff must remain in compliance with the WCA’s COVID-19 protocols, including maintaining physical distance and wearing a face covering. We would kindly request that all attendees for the event/presentation take these same safety measures. If it is not possible for attendees to social distance and/or wear a mask, we would recommend a virtual or recorded presentation.
