Consent for Kids

(Featured resource)Some things kids can’t consent to; they can’t enter into legal contracts, they can’t vote, and they can’t consent to sexual stuff because they’re kids. So if an adult does something that kids can’t consent to that’s not okay. This video aims to teach young people that their body is theirs alone and other people can not make decisions on what they can do with it.

Consent: It’s as Simple as Tea

(Featured resource)This is a lighthearted video about consent and sexual relationships. It compares the concept of consent to tea. If you can understand how completely ludicrous it is to force people to drink tea when they don’t want tea, and you are able to understand when people don’t want tea, then how hard is it to understand when it comes to sex? Whether it’s tea or sex, consent is everything.

Love and Abuse

This is a free to access resource, created by Jory Kusy, available through YouTube. Everything seemed fine between Olivia and John. Just two teens, boyfriend and girlfriend, but when John begins to become jealous of Olivia’s male friend and study partner, Andrew, things between John and Olivia become physical. John and Olivia share their stories and tell what took place between the two.
