Primary Prevention

2012 AL2 bigstock_Child_Portrait_1629881Primary Prevention (formerly known as prevention education) is designed to prevent violence before it occurs by focusing on conditions that reduce violence.

These efforts are culturally and age appropriate, collaborative, evidence based, and address multiple levels of society (individual, relationship, and community).

The goals of our programs focus on education and behavior changes to create environment and cultures that are free from violence.

Program facilitators are trained by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR).

There is a fee for each presentation and reduced rates are available when more than one presentation is requested. For more information or to inquire about fees please contact YWCA Lancaster at 717-393-1735, ext. 225.
