The Enhance Access to Safety for International Students initiative addresses the need to make legal education, sexual violence awareness and community resources available to vulnerable international students in remote, isolated and underserved areas of the province (Prince George, Kelowna, Terrace, and Penticton).
In addition, the initiative aims to increase the awareness of service providers within these same communities of the complexities influencing international students’ decision to disclose sexual violence and to equip this group with the legal education and cultural humility to better support international students.
How to Participate
Enhance Access to Safety for International Students workshop and training webinars, as well as our resources are open and accessible to the public. For more information about the project and the workshops, please contact us.
Funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia, the Enhance Access to Safety for International Students Project will increase the knowledge of international students around sexual violence, consent, the legal and justice systems, administrative processes, and community resources.
Additionally, the project increases the awareness of service providers in rural communities of the complexities impacting international students’ decision to disclose sexual assault, and to provide this group with the legal information and cultural humility to support international students.
