About Us

Yellow Ribbon on Sidewalk

PREPARE is made up of approximately 60 undergraduate students from across campus who are dedicated to promoting healthy relationships and sexual assault prevention at Wake Forest.

All PREPARE student members complete a training course (WGS 397-B) or a one-day intensive workshop to become PREPARE Facilitators who conduct educational and awareness programs.

The PREPARE Executive Board oversees all functions of PREPARE including education and programming efforts and advocacy efforts.
