Sexual Assault Prevention Program
What is the Sexual Assault Prevention Program (S.A.P.P.)?
Initially developed for nurses and EMT staff, the S.A.P.P program is a free 6-month self-defense course focused on preventing sexual assault. The program is designed to help students be more confident both mentally and physically in their everyday lives.
I was initially motivated by an incredible person that fell victim to the predatory grooming behaviours of a rapist. Since that time, I have conducted countless lectures and workshops on child street-proofing and rape protection.
As a paramedic, I attended numerous sexual assaults but it was not until recently (2020) after my friend’s sister, Kimberly Black, fell victim to a vicious attack, that I decided to start this FREE program. Missing and left for dead for over 24 hours, it was nothing short of a miracle that she was found alive. I followed Kim’s incredible recovery and posted this video of these two survivors.
Sexual assault has far-reaching consequences that not only devastate the victim but also impact family and friends as well.
According to Statistics Canada 2019, 76% of bisexual women and 61% of women 15-24 years of age are most likely to fall victim to sexual assault. (https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/85-002-x/2019001/article/00017-eng.htm)
