Educating young people Schools programme About the Schools programme The JWA Education programme aims to: Give young people the tools to form safe, healthy, positive relationships Identify unhealthy behaviour and the warning signs of abuse and harassment Unpick the norms that lead to sexual inequality and understand how this effects all parts of our society Explore the pressures and stigmas that prevent people from speaking out about relationship abuse, harassment and sexual violence – particularly in the Jewish community We write bespoke sessions covering different topics that meet the needs of young people with a variety of different ages and backgrounds. We are sensitive to the needs of different schools and adapt what we deliver to support them. Topics include: Friendships Relationship abuse Consent Relationships in the media Relationships Online How we work We use a variety of methods to help young people to build their relationship skills and recognise the signs of all forms of relationship abuse. Our sessions involve drama, games, discussion and videos – including some which have been tailor-made for JWA with the help of young people. Our sessions for young people are delivered by a team of trained facilitators who have a wealth of experience including teaching and youth work. We also work collaboratively with a number of community organisations including Streetwise, UJIA and UJS. Pupils and students are always given contact details for JWA.
