  • Nevada Cares

    Who said talking about consent and sex has to be awkward and intimidating? It doesn’t! Nevada CARES is a program dedicated to changing the culture on our campus, and changing the way we talk about consent, sex, relationships, and prevention. The goal is to prevent sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking (interpersonal violence). Nevada CARES shifts the way that we view consent, promoting an understanding that consent is a tool for having great relationships. Nevada CARES also provides workshops and trainings on how to be a part of the solution as an active bystander.

    Nevada CARES is available for your student club or organization, class, or team to provide a space for dialogue and practical skills on how we can work together to change the culture around consent. To find out how or to get involved in our Peer Program, visit our website and follow @nvcares on Instagram and Twitter.
