Break The Silence

Break the Silence Gender Violence Prevention Peer Educators is a student-run organization whose mission is to spread awareness and educate peers about gender violence prevention including sexual assault, rape, intimate partner abuse, stalking, and harassment. BTS works to achieve this mission through: extensive and ongoing training; offering programs about gender violence and related topics; providing initial support and resources to those affected by gender violence; and challenging the culture that perpetuates gender violence at Lehigh and elsewhere.

This group is currently accepting applications through September 30.

BTS Presents:


Specially trained Break the Silence Gender Violence Prevention Peer Educators spend an hour conducting an interactive workshop on the sexuality topic of the month.
