Workshops + Trainings

H.O.P.E. Works Education and Prevention efforts strive to give language to name, prevent, and interrupt sexual violence and to reframe conversations to focus on healthy sexuality. In our work, we endeavor to meet all community members where they are at in their learning process, using a trauma-informed, critical lens on the social and structural roots of sexual violence in our society. H.O.P.E. Works Educators nurture a community where all can feel safe, and in which dialogue about the intersections of identities, power, and privilege helps to create new and healthier narratives about sex and intimacy.


We utilize a variety of educational  tools and curricula to tailor workshops and trainings to the unique needs of each population with which we work. Areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:

  • Healthy Sexual Relationships
  • Sex-positive/Healthy Communication Strategies
  • Impact of Language on Sexual Safety and Culture
  • Media and Gender Stereotypes
  • Gender and Sexual Orientation
  • Men in the Movement
  • Rape Culture
  • Responses to Sexual Violence: Basic Advocacy
  • Sexual Violence: What It Is and Is Not
  • Intervention and Becoming an Ally
  • Power and Privilege
  • Intersections of Oppressions: How Violence Shows Up

Our work is age-appropriate to our audiences and can range from middle school classroom workshops to professional development trainings. For more information on bringing an educational opportunity to your community, please contact the Program Director at: elle@hopeworksvt.org
