T&TA Programming

Volunteer Training

DCRCC is honored to partner with community members as volunteers who are essential in advancing the mission of creating a culture of consent. We provide robust initial training and continued education opportunities that provide the tools, skills and content knowledge required of advocates and educators through our volunteer positions. For more information on how to register for training, or to verify the schedule, please contact getinvolved@dcrcc.org.

Community Collaboration

DCRCC often gets contacted with opportunities to partner with community members and local organizations in the DC community. If you have an interest in hosting a public training, or co-facilitating a workshop, please email dcrcc@dcrcc.org to discuss the possibility of partnering.

It’s My Body: Art & Movement Series
Program Overview:
It’s My Body: Art & Movement Series is a workshop that complements DCRCC’s Body Safety curriculum. It is designed to create a shared learning experience between adults and youth*. Using experiential learning principles, participants will engage in theater, art, and games to explore the concepts of expression, communication, and boundaries. DCRCC partners with the DC Public Library to offer this workshop one weekend a month. For details on upcoming workshops, please email dcrcc@dcrcc.org.

Who Should Attend? This curriculum can be adapted for children, youth and adults of all ages. Adult participation is encouraged. This workshop is open to the public and family audiences.

Rethink Masculinity

Rethink Masculinity is a partnership between CASS, ReThink, and DC Rape Crisis Center seeking to address gendered violence by engaging masculine-identifying people in work to promote healthy masculinities. Under the leadership of CASS, the program aims to build nurturance culture, make connections between gender norms and gendered violence, and create an environment where everyone feels responsible for making our communities safe. Collectively, we are committed to working with community members to build simple language to describe the impact of messages of masculinities, tools and space for changing behaviors, and relationships for practicing these skills. We offer a two-month long class where participants meet together once a week for 3-4 hours. These sessions are designed to equip and empower participants to work towards building new models of masculinity.
