"We firmly believe that all forms of harassment and abuse are preventable through education and community involvement."

Respect for everyone

School Based Education


We offer multi-session, in-depth programming based on over 50 research studies. Our progamming is available for students, their caregivers, and school staff and faculty.

Our curriculum for elementary and middle school students is based, in part, on the Prevent Child Abuse Vermont program.


It is founded on 4 key concepts:

1. Adults are primarily responsible for  protecting children  and adolescents from abuse.

2. Violence can be prevented through skill-based, developmentally targeted health promotion  with students in the classroom.

3. Comprehensive prevention includes victim and victimizer prevention and bystander engagement.

4. Consideration of the impact of trauma and past victimization is critical when engaging in violence prevention.


Our curriculum for high school students is adapted from the Bringing In the Bystander program.

Community Education


General Community Outreach
Turning Points Network offers a variety of programs to civic organizations, business groups, churches and other interested groups. Programs are presented on topics including TPNs’ crisis and support services, domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and stalking. While we have many programs that have already been designed, TPNs’ team of Community Educators is also able to develop programs that are tailored to the specific needs and interests of a group.

Our dynamic educators combine lecture, group discussion and practical training to raise awareness and strengthen the ability of service providers to effectively prevent, intervene in and address domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.
