Through a grant from the US Department of Labor, CHS developed training materials to build the capacity of both male and female agricultural workers, including supervisors, to prevent and abate workplace sexual violence. The educational materials are appropriate for use by adult English language learners, and address the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of workplace sexual violence of agricultural workers. The basic materials include a student manual and PowerPoint presentation. Novellas (stories) are used to present characters from a variety of agricultural industries (e.g. crop workings, dairy workings, poultry processors, etc.), broadening the context in which the materials are perceived as applicable. The instructor’s guide provides information for teachers and program managers on facilitating the integration of the materials into adult English as a Second language (ESL) programs and migrant ESL programs.

Key Activities
