Lovebites is a school based relationship violence prevention program. It has been successfully running in the high schools in the Coffs Harbour local area for the past eight years.
Lovebites consists of two interactive workshops on sexual assault and family/domestic violence conducted in the morning followed by creative arts (music, art, and drama) workshops in the afternoon that consolidate the information from the morning workshops. The creative art is then performed or displayed in the schools and in the local community to highlight prevention of violence against women.
The program models respectful relationships between male and female students, teachers and workers.
Ideally, a mix of male and female facilitators presents the program.
