Revolution, then known as Speaker’s Bureau, was developed in 1998 by the Children’s Services Director at the Center for Survivors. In 2009 the group decided to change the name to Revolution. It is a grant funded group which strives to inform teens about the dangers of dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. The group also provides education on the characteristics of healthy relationships.
Who Are We?
Revolution is a select group of students ages 14-20 who are committed to increasing awareness among their peers. Revolution’s members demonstrate exceptional responsibility and leadership qualities. Members are required to go through extensive training before they become members of Revolution.
What We Do
The 2012-2013 theatre presentation is called “Enough” and it consists of three components. The first component is a dramatization written and performed by the Revolution students. It includes subject matter pertaining to dating violence and sexual assault. During the second component, the actors answer questions in character from the audience. Finally, during the third component, the actors provide education to the students. The presentation is concluded with a slideslow set to music. These performances are provided FREE OF CHARGE.
Revolution provides presentations in a six county area: Nance, Colfax, Boone, Platte, Polk, & Butler.
Some comments from audience members about the presentations include:
* “Very good that kids could relate to peers acting.”
* “Powerful message-very believable dramatization.”
* “Answering questions in character was great!”
* “They used real life situations and acted the way it really would be.”
