DCRCC has provided training community education within DC for more than two decades. This legacy is central to our culturally specific and participant focused model of training. Over the last five years, DCRCC has been evolving from a community education framework to one of capacity building. Through customized technical assistance responses, DCRCC provides diverse programming for youth and adult audiences both as short and long term initiatives.

Training and Community Education Principles:

  1. Content Breadth-we work to be relevant in our training by examining intersecting issues, diverse community needs, complex identities, structural oppression, plural histories and root causes of sexual violence.
  2. Experiential Learning-we incorporate the lived experiences and insights of individuals by building participant focused and led learning environments that appeal to diverse learning styles, knowledge levels and audience backgrounds.
  3. Practice and Application-we design interactive learning opportunities created to allow for exploration, curiosity, collaboration and creativity. We value depth of relationship and self-awareness as we promote compassionate and informed responses to survivors.
  4. Transferrable skills and understandings-we encourage participants to draw connections and think innovatively by drawing from multiple disciplines and knowledge sources in the creation and facilitation of training. In this way, we model our value of critical thinking and promote practical application and engaged learning.
