Denise B, College Student “Ms. Dawn is so motivating and inspiring… I actually started taking notes!”

Dawn essentially took the concepts of ... violence prevention and non-violent conflict resolution and demonstrated their additional utility as leadership skills. The workshop was very informative and well received by the participants. I believe the concepts presented are an excellent fit for any sexual assault/violence prevention program and I highly recommend Dawn Haynes as a presenter
