Grant: Jean Nidetch Women's Center
The Jean Nidetch Women's Center (JNWC) received $5,000 from B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Foundation for a new golf cart for our "Quiz Cart" initiative. The goal of the “Reality Ride Quiz Cart” is to increase the visibility of JNWC programs involving sexual assault and relationship violence issues and maintain inclusion of marginalized communities, while being the only trauma-informed safety transportation on campus. Non-traditional students are typically students who have either delayed their enrollment between high school and postsecondary education or students who returned after an interruption in their postsecondary education. These students tend to work and/or parent during the day and attend their academic courses at night. For this reason, they aren’t often exposed to the JNWC/CARE Advocates’ anti-violence and intimate partner violence (IPV) awareness programming. The “Reality Ride Quiz Cart” or “Quiz Cart” takes place in the evening as a direct effort to engage non-traditional students in the anti-violence movement.
