Sexual abuse and harassment exist everywhere, and the religious community is, sadly, no exception. Children who have learnt to become empowered, together with adults who are potential guardians, can create a community in which predators are afraid to operate. Sexual predators can identify children with no armor. That's why children who have the capability to resist attackers, and can also share their experiences, project a clear and assertive message that will help deter offenders.
Our goal in לתת פה "Dare To Share" is to minimize abuse and harassment in religious schools and communities.Elementary schools in the religious society in Israel tend to have a more communal nature than secondary schools, so the focus of many religious communities is on elementary education. Elementary schools are really the key to the religious communities.
Education can make changes!
Studies prove that education can create change! A drastic change! In an educated environment the chances of sexual abuse are reduced by more than 80%.
Dare To Share brings a five stage program to each community.
1) Preparatory meetings with the spiritual leadership
2) Workshops for the teachers
3) An evening with all the parents of the community
4) Activities within each class geared towards the level of understanding of each age group
5) A concluding performance for the entire school that expresses the newfound empowerment of the children to protect themselves and their friends.
At the end all the children see the activities as a positive and full experience.
Dare To Share’s team consist of 18 professional and experienced counselors.
Our staff has experience with many different types of Jewish religious school, from liberal to ultra-orthodox and has separate staffs for religious boys and girls schools
Our staff constantly adapts the program to the particular needs of the schools and communities. Many schools (especially in the religious sector) have specific requests regarding the way to approach sexual issues, making us an "always learning- always changing" program. We use the information we receive to make the program more relevant and effective.

We wanted our high school students to to be more open with us about issues involving their sexuality. This program proved itself very effective, addressing sexual development, relationships and abuse, the staff managed to involve both students and teachers so that the communication has continued even after the conclusion of the program.
