Abstract: Sexual violence has been prevalent in the United States for decades. There is a great concern that the youth of this nation is becoming more susceptible to the violence at younger ages. Some schools have begun implementation of sexual violence prevention programs to curb this type of crime in adolescents. The Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA) is an organization that aids in the prevention of sexual violence through a multi-session school-based sexual violence prevention program called Teen Exchange for children in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. The program's curriculum usually lasts 8 to 9 sessions with a culminating project. Students involved with Teen Exchange were given pre-program and post-program surveys, to assess their attitude and behavioral changes regarding sexual violence. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were conducted to gauge the changes that occurred.
