Creative Action Workshop:
Helping Young People Understand Consent


In this time of polarization in our country, young people may be receiving confusing messages about how to treat one another. Some messages normalize racism and bullying. To respond, Creative Action has created this free workshop series that highlights creative, inquiry-based activities and discussion starters that counter harmful messages and provide tools for engaging young people in conversation.

These virtual workshops for adults supporting young people as parents, caregivers, and educators. In "Helping Young People Understand Consent" we'll explore why and how to talk about consent with young people of all ages.


All workshops will be held over the Zoom platform, in real time (synchronous learning) and will not be recorded. Workshops are meant to be participatory and interactive. These are not listening sessions - they include dialogue, breakout rooms, and other activities.

Creative Action is a state of Texas approved provider of Continuing Professional Education credits. Credit is provided to educators for every hour of workshop attended.

Workshop space is limited—if you find you cannot attend after registering, please let us know so that we can open your spot up to someone else.
