Connecting schools with programs

As PiP Coordinator I am regularly contacted by schools wanting to initiate some form of respectful relationships education (RRE) whether it be a ‘one off’ session or a more comprehensive long-term program. Schools are often unaware of the programs in their region or of the variety of RRE programs on offer. In order to better connect schools with RRE programs PiP is undertaking work to create an online map of  RRE programs across Victoria including basic information about these programs. To ensure that your program is included in the mapping process please complete this survey . We will re-distribute this information via the next PiP bulletin as well and you can contact me (awebster@dvrcv.org.au) with any queries about the project.
