No Means No Worldwide is a comprehensive rape prevention organization for boys and girls. We are a school based program that uses a positive IMpowerment model for teaching gender equality, safety and intervention skills.
We believe the best response to the epidemic of sexual assault is to provide our male and female students with an awareness of the causes and effects of sexual gender based violence and the skills to intervene or prevent it.
Our research shows that in high schools where girls have taken our classes the incidence of rape drops from 20% annually to under 10%.
Preliminary research on our new â€˜Your Moment of Truthâ€™ curriculum for boys shows thatÂ male students gender-negative attitudes towards women and girls were transformed to aÂ more positive and supportive set of beliefs.
