Save the Date: Consent Education Training for School Professionals

Join us on October 10th & 11th, for our Consent Education Training, a two-day training on consent and sexual assault prevention for people who work in schools. This workshop is open to members of school communities in all roles: faculty, counselors, support staff, coaches, security, administration, and so on.

We welcome anyone who is interested in deepening their understanding of consent and sexual assault prevention, and learning tools and strategies for creating more respectful, affirming school communities.


““This (Consent Educator) training is thoughtfully designed and wonderfully executed.  I can’t imagine a better approach to this work in such a relatively short period of time.  I’m confident my school community will benefit from our participation in this training.” – Head of Upper School

This was a most worthwhile workshop. I have already told various lower school teachers that this is a most important program and they should sign up sooner….and not be later on this education.” – Head of Lower School

The facilitators were knowledgeable and personable and actually listened rather than lectured, and the whole thing felt hugely relevant and meaningful.” – Upper School English Teacher

After 30 years of serving the Independent School community in the New York City area, the board of Freedom Institute has reached the difficult decision to close Hallways and thereby end the organization's prevention programming due to its financial unsustainability. 


Hallways’ accomplishments are community accomplishments. Thank you to our many partner schools for their years of investment and dedication to our important work. Thank you to all the parents and community partners who have attended our talks, hosted events, and advocated for social-emotional learning in your schools. Thank you to the students, who showed up with vulnerability in our workshops and allowed us to learn and grow from sharing their realities with us. And finally, thank you to the Hallways team members, past and present, for all the passion, humor, thoughtfulness, and creativity you have all brought over the years. 


We are thrilled to continue the sale of  From the Inside Out: The Hallways Handbook For Raising Emotionally Healthy Adolescents
