Nancy Tiffin with Sunshine Coast Community Services says they teamed up with School District 46 and hosted the 2016 Mentors in Violence Prevention Program student summit recently.
At the summit, grade 10 and 11 students had a chance to discuss scenarios and to recognize when someone is being mistreated based on gender or sexual identity.
Tiffins says similar programs have been in place across North America for a long time, and hopes the B.C. government continues to fund the MVP program.
