Prevention of violence requires us to critically examine the social, cultural, and historical dimensions of violence, encourage individuals to deconstruct current systems of oppression.

Depending on the request, public education programs are tailored for different audiences.  Content and materials are made age appropriate and accessible. Similarly, G-W Women in Crisis can assure that academic lesson plans are designed to meet desired Ontario Curriculum expectations or specific program goals.
