Empowered works with female students in year 10 with a focus on promoting a positive sense of self and identity.
Research on domestic violence shows that by the time they reach their teenage years, most young people have experienced or witnessed some form of domestic abuse.
Empowered provides an opportunity to discuss the key drivers of violence such as rigid gender roles and stereotypes, limits to women’s independence, while exploring healthy and unhealthy relationships.
The program aims to empower young women, while building their capacity to understand and address the drivers of violence including warning signs, while providing access to resources for support.
Students who participate in the Power to End Violence Against Women Program and Empowered program are invited to attend an annual Leadership Day.
The day aims to empower young men and women to be leaders amongst their peers and allies for social change.
Students are joined by Port Adelaide Football Club past and current players as well as industry leaders in the prevention of violence space.
Those who participate in the full day program are encouraged to share their learnings to the wider cohort at their respective schools.
