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

HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Becoming a volunteer is easier than it sounds. To be an official LGC volunteer you are required to attend and complete two Let’s Get Consensual workshops put on by the Centre for Student Success. What’s even better is that these workshops are noted on your co-curricular record! By becoming an official volunteer, 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:
- Check the CSU’s calendar to see when the next Let’s Get Consensual workshop is being held and sign up for your first workshop with the Centre for Student Success.
- Attend the first workshop
- Attend your second workshop and learn more in-depth theory and practices for handling cases of sexual assault.
- Once certified by the Centre for Student Success, sign up through our volunteer registry — make sure you click the box that says “Let’s Get Consensual”
