"Keeping It 100!" is a FREE youth-led training for any Maine high school student. It is a fast-paced, fun, and interactive day-long workshop facilitated by our Youth Advisory Council. Through peer-led activities, we will engage with and discuss important topics, while discovering new information about themselves and their peers. This unique opportunity explores societal pressures and narrow definitions of gender and how they can lead to a culture of self-harm, disrespect, harassment, and violence. Topics also include healthy relationships, setting boundaries, and communication skills.
Participants will leave better prepared to navigate the pressures of adolescence and with knowledge they can use to help make their school communities safer and more inclusive. This workshop empowers students to play a central role in confronting sexist attitudes and behaviors that are limiting and harmful to everyone.
"This is an opportunity to talk about very important topics that don't get talked about or addressed anywhere else." ~RSVP high school participant
"Keeping It 100!" definition: To keep yourself real and true, to be honest, and to stick to the way you are, no matter what anyone else thinks.
