BeSafe@Last: BE! is a sexual assault awareness curriculum designed for middle and high school students. It focuses on promoting healthy relationships while giving teens resources to get help if they experience dating violence or other forms of abuse. Be! was developed to help teens understand their unique value in order to treat themselves and each other with respect. Additionally, the program encourages and empowers teens to make a difference in their community by learning skills to end sexual violence and change social expectations. Click here to learn more.
We are an authorized facilitator of Stewards of Children, an evidence-informed training for parents and adults who live with, care for or love children. This training offers practical take-away tips that empower all of us to prevent child sexual abuse.

SAC works collaboratively with Middle TN colleges and universities to develop campus sexual assault prevention strategies and interventions, grounded in research-based best practices, that help to end and or reduce the incidents of sexual violence. These presentations are tailored to the culture and needs of each campus. Topics include: the basics on sexual assault and how to respond, consent, healthy relationships, bystander intervention, trauma-informed care and rape culture.
SAC, along with the Tennessee Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence and the Department of Health have created the Tennessee Bystander Project. This project is to raise awareness about everyone's role in preventing sexual violence in our community. Look for our ad in Nashville and Clarksville, take a selfie, and share #ISeeIDo to increase our awareness efforts. It's up to all of us to end sexual violence within our communities.

Local bars and restaurants should be comfortable, fun and safe. Customers should have a “top shelf” experience in an atmosphere of safety with knowledgeable and trained staff which equals safe, happy and satisfied customers. Bystander Intervention is an effective prevention strategy that staff can use to decrease sexual assault.
