Date Safe Project- Student Leader Opportunity

The Date Safe Project is an organization committed to helping clear up misconceptions about healthy dating, intimacy, consent, sex, respect, sexual assault and honoring survivors. Mike Domitrz, founder of the date safe project, has over 10 years of experience traveling the country and speaking with both students of all ages and member of the U.S. military.

This program will be an Open Forum for student leaders to ask questions about issues including: consent, sexual assault, safe party concepts, working with survivors of sexual assault, and how to intervene when they see something happening at a party. I think this is a great training/educational opportunity for your student leaders.
