April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month

sexualassualtawarenessmonth2017

At Zandoli and Caribbean Committee Against Sex Crimes, we support safety education for sexual assault awareness.  For the month of April, we will share materials relating to prevention and learning materials from our resource network.

We read through STOP IT NOW’s TIP SHEET: Everyday Actions to Keep Kids Safe and provided a basic summary for families.  This tip sheet is not just for victims, but for all family members to promote prevention.  Talking with your family and children educates them and like the old adage goes “Prevention is better than cure.”  That simply means that it is easier to prevent something than having to undo the pain and trauma of having to “fix” or “heal”.

Determine clear boundaries and guidelines.

    • All family members have a right to privacy when dressing, bathing, sleeping, etc… without being watched, touched or violated in uncomfortable ways.
    • If the child does not feel like kissing a relative, even it’s Grandma, allow the child to shake hands, respecting the child’s body.
      • Watch for inappropriate behavior in adults or older children.
        • Practice speaking about awkward things and saying uncomfortable or embarrassing words out loud and confronting those behaviors.
        • Report anything you suspect as sexual abuse.
          • Respect their privacy when they say “NO!” to touch that they are not happy with.

          Be prepared.

            • Have a safety plan
            • Make a list of people to report abuse or signs of abuse to

            zandoliSTEM

            Zandoli International Foundation launched Zandoli STEM Incubator last year in an effort to provide free STEM education to communities that may have not had the opportunity to participate in these programs otherwise.  On Saturday, April 1st, ZIF sent all students who signed up last year, the prerequisites to begin the first batch.

            If you signed up for the Zandoli STEM Incubator last year, coursework has been emailed to all who registered. If you signed up and did not receive an email with your first course, please message info@zandoli.org.

            If you did not get a chance to sign up last year and would like to participate, please complete the form on this page.

            Due to the rigorous nature of the coursework and changes in the technology industry, we require all candidates to complete and pass a pre-requisite course.  The course: Big Data & Artificial Intelligence BDAi-101 will take approximate 6 hours to complete; although, you can complete it faster, or take longer if needed.  No penalties will arise from taking extra time; however, to be considered for continuation in the program, it is advised that students complete BDAi-101 by April 30, 2017.  After you complete the program, a career coach from Zandoli will be in touch with you regarding the educational path you would like to choose. Entry into all paths requires a passing grade of 70% in BDAi-101 to move on to the core curriculum.
            Please sign up to take the free prerequisite course BDAi-101 here:
            We thank you for your interest in STEM education with Zandoli and look forward to helping you reach success towards this effort.
