Middle School

The Boston Area Rape Crisis center is committed to providing materials and support to middle school educators interested in preventing sexual violence.


The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center has led hundreds of workshops for middle school students over the last 20 years. We want to share this experience with other educators. We have prepared a formal curriculum for each of our most popular workshops. Each curriculum includes:

  • An Overview that includes: instructor qualifications, recommended length, intended audience, a short description including the goals and required materials.
  • In depth instructions for each activity including learning objectives, detailed trainers notes, and questions to expect.
  • Handouts.

Respecting Boundaries

The goal of this workshop is to work with younger youth to identify others' personal boundaries, understand how to respect them, and develop community responsibility that supports personal boundaries. This session includes discussion and activities about the difficulty of respecting boundaries with friends and peers.Participants practice interacting in respectful ways in complicated situations.
