Open and honest communication, mutual respect, and support are all components of a healthy relationship. As the girls and women in WISE’ programs grow and mature it is important that they be able to identify the aspects of a healthy and unhealthy relationship. We want them to know that they deserve to be treated well and as equal partners in a relationship of their choosing. They have the right to set boundaries, negotiate compromises and determine what is non-negotiable within their personal relationships.
This program works with students to help them decide if, when and how they want to interact with others. The focus of the program activities are to prevent dating violence, stalking, cyberstalking and sex trafficking through knowing how to differentiate between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy one; and to learn about bystander intervention which teaches them about the signs of abuse and how to safely intervene with a classmate, friend or family member to keep them safe.

Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Program
The SVP program collaborates with schools and other community organizations to train them on mitigating violence in the community through prevention, intervention, and response strategies.
Through the SVP program, WISE has worked with Washington Technology Magnet School from 2020-2023 to train teachers, school personnel, and students on strategies to mitigate school-based domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, bullying and stalking. The program collaborated with Transforming Generations to provide direct services to those in need.
Starting 2024, WISE will be working with HOPE Community Academy to provide culturally-informed violence mitigation strategies for Hmong students.
