Shifting Boundaries: Lessons on Relationships for Students in Middle School is an evidence-based, multi-level prevention program for middle school students on sexual harassment and precursors to dating violence. The program is unique in that it embraces an environmental approach that identifies multiple strategies to support young people – both school-wide interventions and classroom lessons.

The Shifting Boundaries program works to prevent sexual harassment and dating violence in middle schools by raising awareness about gender-based violence and promoting healthy relationship norms. Included are lesson plans with handouts for students, awareness posters, a webinar recording, and evidence for the effectiveness of the Shifting Boundaries curriculum.

Lesson plans and additional resources are available on VAWnet.org.
