"Education programs are the key components to our strategies for ending sexual violence in Acadiana."  ~Val Senegal.

The Education Director manages Hearts of Hope's Education department services and maintains effective partnerships in the Acadiana area school systems, early childhood education centers and allied-professional organizations to implement prevention & intervention education programs that combat sexual violence. Training sessions and workshops are periodically provided for law enforcement, criminal justice system professionals and behavioral/mental health professionals. Events and awareness campaigns are implemented on college and university campuses. Our center proudly works with the Catholic Diocese as well as other faith-based organizations to complement "Safe Environment" efforts and other sexual abuse prevention programs.
