Prevention & Awareness
Prevention Education Programs
The Schools Program delivers age-appropriate prevention training in the classroom, grades K-12, to schools in Summit and Wasatch Counties. We educate children about: Child Abuse Prevention, Internet Safety, Healthy Relationships, Bystander Intervention, and Dating Violence Prevention. Higher education and continuing education courses are also available. Curricula includes: Prevent Child Abuse Utah, Safe Dates, and Upstanding: Stepping Up to Prevent Violence in Utah (from the Utah Department of Health).
Community awareness programs are used to familiarize our local community to Peace House’s programs and services, as well as our “3 R’s Model” to recognize, respond, and refer domestic and sexual violence victims to Peace House for help.
Domestic and sexual violence are public health issues that affect the community as a whole. We need your help in spotting this violence and assisting each member of our society including educating them that they each have the right to live a life free from violence. Peace House is part of both the Summit County Domestic Violence Coalition and the Wasatch County Domestic Violence Coalition. We work with these organizations to partner with community members and bring awareness to domestic and sexual violence prevention.

Peace House provides training programs covering the Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) for law enforcement, Child Sexual Abuse Prevention for school personnel and parents, the Cut It Out Program for salon professionals, the 3 R’s for Faith Leaders, a Safety Training for bars, and Trauma-Informed Care for healthcare providers.
