Current projects

There are lots of ways to get involved in our current projects.

Youth Addressing Online Harassment Summer & Fall 2018 Camp

In the summer of 2018, Project Respect brought together a bunch of youth to chat about the awesomes and not-so-awesomes of life online. These young folks are the next leaders at Project Respect, working towards organizing our youth social action camp this fall, Oct 18-20. At the social action camp this fall we’ll hang out and chat, use theatre, creative writing, and other fun activities to explore elements of youth online lives. We’ll explore cyberbullying and online harassment, as well as how to ensure the virtual world is a great place socially — maybe we’ll make videos or other online resources for other youth, maybe we’ll make sex-positive policy recommendations for our local school districts. Who knows!? It’ll be up to whoever shows up to figure out exactly what will emerge.

Stay tuned to our blog for updates! We’ll have openings for youth wanting to be involved in helping organize the camp, as well as for camp participants. Be in touch if you’d like to be involved!

Safer Spaces Project

Youth-led Workshops for Teachers and Youth Service Providers

A few years ago, the Rhizome team developed and facilitated workshops for educators, school administration and youth service providers! These workshops use discussion, role plays, multimedia resources and other exercises to create a space for adults who work with youth to learn how to challenge gender stereotypes, and to develop the knowledge and language to be active bystanders and create safe and inclusive environments.  Over the last few years we’ve been tweaking the curriculum, training more youth to facilitate the workshops, and have been doing many more of these workshops, including with educational assistants and teachers throughout the three local school districts!

Be in touch if you’d like to have us do a workshop for your group!
