Our mission is to make our campus safer by providing judgment-free consent education and training in order to fight rape culture on campus. From condoms to consent training, we do this in a number of ways including poster and media campaigns, workshops and training, safer sex packets, tabling with free swag, and much more!
Let’s Get Consensual is a joint campaign operated by the Capilano Students’ Union and Capilano University’s support & wellness department, and was initially started by the University of Victoria, the University of Victoria Student Society, the Anti-Violence Project, and partner organizations across BC.
WHAT WE DO
OUTREACH & EVENTS
Throughout the year, the CSU and Capilano University’s student affairs department will be engaging students on the topics of sexualized violence and holding workshops and seminars to promote consent on campus. We will be bringing workshops directly into classroom and various student groups across campus. If you are interested in attending a workshop or bringing a workshop to your classroom or student group, reach out to our working group for information!
We are also calling on all university community members to take a stand and pledge their commitment to practicing and promoting consent, challenging rape culture and supporting survivors.

We are always accepting volunteers and love when students help out and get involved in any way possible. Below are the following ways to get involved with Let’s Get Consensual.

The Let’s Get Consensual task force is comprised of our leading student ambassadors who are passionate about spreading awareness of sexualized violence and consent on campus. Our team works to set the direction for the campaign by planning workshops and events, bringing in guest speakers, and working closely alongside our Capilano University Centre for Student Success partners to bring about a culture of consent across the Capilano community.
HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Becoming a volunteer is easy. To be an official LGC volunteer, you can sign up as a peer helper under Capilano University’s Peers Helping Peers programs. Once you have completed your application form and are requested for interview, you will receive the necessary training and orientation sessions for all LGC team members. Your involvement as a peer helper and participation in training workshops are all noted on your co-curricular record.
Once you are officially a peer helper with LGC, you can attend CSU and university events as a voice for the campaign, offer help and information through interactive outreach, and receive a very cool Let’s Get Consensual shirt.
Becoming a volunteer takes four steps:
- Visit the Peers Helping Peers page on the university website and fill out your Let’s Get Consensual application;
- Be selected for interview by our LGC working group;
- Attend the basic LGC workshop and Responding to Disclosures workshop (total 3 hours);
- Once certified by the Centre for Student Success, wait for information from the community wellness strategist Jody Armstrong about volunteer opportunities and scheduling.
