CCASA promotes safety, justice, and healing for survivors while working toward the elimination of sexual violence. Provides research, resources, and training to enable Colorado communities to believe and support survivors, hold perpetrators accountable, and take action to end sexual violence.
The purpose of this zine is to support young people who are survivors of sexual assault, as they search for resources, understanding, and a path toward healing. This zine gives some ideas of where they can go for understanding and support.
This Toolkit is designed to help Colorado victim advocates, case managers, guidance counselors, educators, medical providers and youth-serving professionals determine the most effective responses for working with survivors of sexual assault/abuse who are teenagers. In some situations, it may be appropriate to share this Toolkit with teens. This Toolkit is not a substitute for legal advice, but rather should be used to provide guidelines while informing agency policies around advocacy, counseling, and medical services for minors as it relates to sexual violence or sexual abuse.
