Building Healthy Relationships

Consent & Peer Pressure

Pre-adolescent workshop
4th-6th grade

During preadolescence, peer relationships take on more importance, and learning how to communicate feelings is important for both youth and adults. The Building Healthy Relationships: Consent & Peer Pressure workshop for 4th-6th graders empowers pre-adolescents with the skills to communicate about consent, how to examine situations where consent is violated, how to identify and respond to different types of peer pressure, and how to identify people in their lives who can offer help if they find themselves in a difficult situation.

To help participants: 

  • understand the concept of consent

  • identify signals indicating consent and refusal 

  • understand the importance of clear communication

  • recognize peer pressure

  • respond to situations that may be challenging or hurtful

  • identify people who can be helpful in difficult situations


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • define the concept of consent 

  • distinguish between communicating consent and refusal 

  • identify at least two trustworthy people from whom they could seek help in a difficult situation 

  • demonstrate two effective ways to communicate feelings

  • describe some ways that peers can pressure others

  • identify two effective ways to respond to peer pressure


This workshop is intended to be 75 minutes. However, I can condense it to meet your time needs.

Will this workshop be scary? 

  • This workshop is overwhelmingly positive because we have the opportunity to nurture youth into becoming leaders, advocating for consent and creating positive change in their social circles and beyond. The workshop will be informative, fun and even funny at times! I assure you that there will be plenty of giggling. 

Why is this important? 

  • To empower youth with a comprehensive understanding of consent and its pivotal role in fostering a healthier and more inclusive society.

  • Through this work, I aspire to spark a transformative movement where young people actively promote consent, paving the way for a safer, more respectful, and empathetic culture for everyone.
