High School participates in the CAASE program.

We believe that talking to young people about sexual harm is a profound way to prevent it from happening in the first place. We provide innovative and engaging curriculum across Chicago to empower students to become active allies in our movement. Participants in our prevention workshops learn to think critically about gender, identify elements of rape culture, understand consent and boundaries, and recognize the realities of the commercial sex trade and trafficking. 

In Chicagoland high schools, and wherever we’re invited, we reach students in grades 9-12, parents/guardians, school personnel, and professionals in the field. If you’re interested in bringing our workshops to your school or organization, please click here for more information.

If you’d like more information or have questions about how we can assist you, please contact Shalini Mirpuri, Prevention Manager, at smirpuri@caase.org.

Our curriculum aligns with many Common Core State Standards, Illinois Social/Emotional Learning Standards, and National Sexuality Education Standards.
