Consent Resources for Teens Working with Teens to Prevent Sexual Violence

We consent to things daily! In fact, a recent survey showed the average adult makes over 35,000 decisions/day. We are actually experts in consent and decision-making. However when it comes to sex and intimacy, we tend to believe it’s confusing and unclear and “gray.” Consent at its core is when everyone involved freely and willingly agree to participate – when all involved are in harmony. For more information, including ages of consent per state, and more details about consent, when consent is given, not given, and how to ensure you have consent, please see the resources below, and our definition of consent here.
