The Brock Sexual Violence Support Centre (A Safer Brock) was established in 2011 to support survivors of sexual violence at Brock University and to deliver proactive education aimed at preventing gendered violence. I founded this organization; raised $210,000 in annualized funding; developed all of the organization’s print and online marketing materials; developed organizational bylaws, policies, and budgets; and established relationships with community stakeholders. Since launching, I have developed a comprehensive ten-week training program, which I have used to train and coordinate over 150 volunteers and a team of paid staff. I have launched innovative support services, including Canada’s first sexual assault centre’s 24/hr texting line.
