program logo

Seneca and Yellow Brick House have partnered together to create the Students Supporting Students — Taking a Stand Against Abuse website. With information and links to Seneca and community resources, the website is meant to assist those suffering from abuse or those who know someone suffering from abuse.

As part of a federally-funded project, Seneca and Yellow Brick House have worked together with students, employees and community organizations to conduct surveys, focus groups and identify ways to engage young people to prevent violence against women on postsecondary campuses. Melissa de Nobrega, Michael Alexander, and Dave Tauro, students taking the Graphic Design for Social Change course, developed the messaging and artwork that supports the site.

Yellow Brick House is a nonprofit organization providing emergency shelter, counselling and supportive services to abused women and their children in York Region.
