Approximately 2.3 million people each year in the United States are raped and/or physically assaulted by a current or former partner. The Hive is dedicated to educating and increasing awareness in the community on sexual assault and intimate partner violence.
Education & Community Awareness
The Hive CC is dedicated to providing accurate scholarly based information as we educate the community. Therefore we strive to stay abreast of new and upcoming trainings, curriculum, resources, research findings, as well as current events. This information may be disbursed through our presentations, workshops, website, blog, and social media.
In addition,we also offer Hive Gatherings. These sessions are small and intimate in nature and create the perfect atmosphere to discuss often challenging topics that may seem intimidating or overwhelming to discuss in nature. Hive Gatherings are great for parents, church groups, sororities, fraternities, mentoring programs, and additional community groups to host. As a host you have the opportunity to recieve tools, information, and resources in an intimate safe space to discuss topics such as (healthy dating, sexual violence, relational aggression, pre-marital sex, sexting, dating violence, and more). Sessions are 1.5 hrs. long however you may customize a 3 hr. gathering to combine one of the identified/non-identified topics upon requests. Hive Gatherings are intended for smaller groups recommended up to 15 participants maximum.
