Show Notes

In the midst of a global pandemic, Green River College’s Relationship & Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) Peer Educator program formed with the goal of providing student-led violence prevention education to the students, faculty, and staff of GRC, a diverse college located in King County, WA. In this first of two episodes, RSVP Peer Educators share a bit about what peer education is, why they do what they do, and their thoughts on violence prevention’s place in higher education. Next week, we hear from the facilitator of the program and the work behind building a team of peer educators.
