- The program aims to prevent the sexual exploitation of minors by empowering pre-teens in Quebec to make safe decisions.
- Vocabulary, approach, and activities tailored for students ages 8 to 13.
The vast majority of juvenile disappearances in Quebec consists of teenagers running away from home and almost a third of these teens become victims of sexual exploitation.
The interactive SHINE program is designed for students in Cycles 2 and 3, and Secondary 1. Using an open and engaging approach with students, our prevention team discusses self-esteem, personal boundaries, healthy relationships and gender stereotypes. With the help of a variety of exercises that include scenarios, videos and reflections, these workshops empower students to develop their self-confidence and their ability to resist external pressures.
