International Students Accessing Information and Education (ISAFE) Project addresses sexual violence against international students. Service providers in B.C., more specifically, Castlegar and Dawson Creek will have the opportunity to attend a comprehensive and customized Responding to International Students' Disclosures of Sexual Assault (RISD) Training, to build their capacity to receive disclosures of sexual assault and to respond in an empowering, trauma informed and culturally sensitive manner.
International students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in the 2 hour Enhanced Peer CAFES (Creating Awareness to Facilitate Education and Support) Forum to increase their awareness of sexual assault, sexual violence prevention and self-help resources. Additionally, educational and prevention videos will be available, which can be accessed globally by international students to increase their safety and reduce their risk of sexual victimization.
Cultural sensitive training developed for service providers will be open for registration soon. The training will take place in mid-June and will be available to all service providers working with international students in academic institutions in B.C. (priority will be given to service providers in Castlegar and Dawson Creek).
The Enhanced Peer CAFES Forum will be available for all international students who would like to learn more about the online videos and receive additional resources. Registration will be opening soon.
