SACSC dynamic and interactive workshops and presentations are based on two premises: (1) that non-violent values and behaviours must be taught, modelled and reinforced by all the adults in a child’s life and (2) that children are the responsibility of the entire community. The following workshops/presentations will engage adults through videos, role-plays and cooperative activities.
Many of the following sessions are available as 1 hour presentations or as 3 hour workshops. Contact us for more information or to request a workshop or presentation or view Upcoming Workshops and Events.
