Prevention Education


MESA’s prevention education programs empower participants to lead in the transformation of our current culture, which normalizes and encourages sexual violence, into a culture based on consent, safety and respect. MESA offers trainings and presentations on consent, healthy masculinity, bystander intervention and more at schools, businesses, and community organizations.

Youth Programs


Peers Building Justice has two main components:

  1. Curriculum: Adult Mentors from SPAN and MESA provide in-classroom education about dating and sexual violence. PBJ uses the evidenced-based curriculum Safe Dates, which is given over a dosage of 6-8 sessions. To learn more about the curriculum and how to schedule presentations for a BVSD classroom, visit our Curriculum Page.
  2. Training Institute: The Training Institute is a group of high school youth who meet regularly after school to promote social justice and resist violence in our communities. The Training Institute is open to all BVSD students. To learn more, visit our Training Institute Page.

PBJ aims to educate and empower youth to prevent interpersonal and sexual violence while promoting social justice in our communities.


The Men of Strength (MOST) Club is a space where guys can come together and talk about what it means to be a man.

MOST Club Goals:

  • Provide a space for guys to connect
  • Build capacity for leadership and allyship
  • Grow awareness of subtle forms of violence
  • Explore different models of manhood

MOST Clubs were developed in 2000 by Men Can Stop Rape to mobilize young men in building masculinity that promotes healthy relationships and prevents gender-based violence.
