MOASH, in partnership with sexual violence prevention experts across the state, is excited to announce the launch of a new resource: the K-5 Consent Toolkit!
This resource responds to the needs of teachers, parents, and caregivers for quality consent education for students in elementary school. The toolkit includes recommendations for specific resources – including curricula, videos, books, and websites – as well as best practices for implementing consent lessons with K-5 youth. Also included is an overview of Michigan’s standards for K-5 consent education and a guide to understanding local district policy to advance school-based education in your community.
Healthy relationship skills are critical, and it’s never too early to start learning them!Experts agree that consent education in elementary school – including concepts like bodily autonomy, respecting boundaries, and healthy communication – provides an essential foundation for preventing sexual violence and creating a culture of consent later on.
