Haven is an interactive online education and skill building program created and hosted by Everfi. With data from the National Institute of Justice showing that one in five college women (and one in 16 men) will experience some form of non-consensual sexual activity by graduation, the widespread impact of sexual violence on students is a critical issue for all college campuses. Haven – Understanding Sexual Assault™ addresses the issues of sexual assault, relationship violence, and stalking, which impact countless college students across the country.
Haven relies on proven prevention theories and educational strategies to help students understand the many aspects of the sexual assault issue. The program’s primary focus is to educate students about relationships and decision-making, including: ethics of relationships, alcohol’s effect on relationships, the ability to give consent, important definitions and debunking myths associated with sexual assault.
