The Power to End Violence Against Women program has been developed to raise awareness around the issue of violence against women and promote respectful relationships to young men in year 10 across schools in South Australia.

Developed with Centacare Catholic Services and the Department for Education, the Power to End Violence Against Women program provides young men the opportunity to discuss the issue of violence against women and explore respectful relationships.

The program provides the information and skills necessary for young men to make informed choices to prevent violent behaviours in society.

In consultation with the Department for Education, the program will complement the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum that is delivered in primary and secondary schools.

Participating students are invited to attend the Power to End Violence Against Women Leadership Day as an extension of the school program.

The program is focused on becoming an active bystander and is designed to develop a student’s knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to have a safe and effective conversation with someone and/or group of people when they see or hear them engaging in behaviours that are directly and/or indirectly disrespectful to women.

All participating students are also invited to attend an annual Family Event where students are invited to bring a male role model in their life to attend in order to highlight the work they have completed in the program and to continue to raise awareness of the issue of violence against women.

The program engages over 1500 year 10 students each year across 20 schools.
