Clubs + Our Turn Carleton

CUSA is proud to implement a Sexual Violence Prevention and Support Training for all clubs and societies in partnership with OurTurn Carleton, a chapter from a student-led advocacy group called OurTurn National/ À notre tour, that is dedicated to combating sexual violence on Canadian post-secondary campuses.

The interactive peer-to-peer training was developed by students from OurTurn is led by student volunteers. The 2 hour session includes:

  • Information about consent, sexual violence, and rape culture that is directly applicable to campus events and student life
  • Strategies to help prevent sexual violence by being an active bystander
  • Approaches to support a friend who discloses that they’ve experienced sexual violence
  • Information about the reporting process on campus as well as available resources at Carleton and in the wider Ottawa community

Clubs funding will be dependent on a minimum of five members of each club completing the OurTurn Carleton Sexual Violence Prevention and Support training. The first half of the funding will be distributed after funding presentations, and the second half will be awarded upon completion of the training of five members. Training will be scheduled regularly to make it as convenient as possible for clubs to attend.
