Join Our Consent Café Team
The Consent Café is adding to their team!
The Consent Café Team is seeking multiple Consent Café Mentors in order to support the Consent Café program.
The Consent Café is an activity-based consent education, communication, and sexualized violence prevention and response program for youth and young adults. Our overarching goal is to introduce and reinforce rights-based consent literacy and sexualized violence prevention early to ensure youth transitioning from high-school to post-secondary (TRU) or high school to the workforce have this critical knowledge. The Consent Café works because we meet participants “where they are at”, where they learn, and where they are navigating consent every day. Our curriculum and Consent Mentors are relational and capacity building, peer and community supported, reflexive, strengths-based, and trauma-informed.
Please see the below postings for these positions. If you have any questions, please contact Chelsea Corsi or Tanya Pawliuk, Consent Café Co-founders, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
