Merced College

Valley Crisis Center has collaborated with Merced College to bring a prevention/education program at Merced College. Our Prevention Specialist, Araceli, is working diligently with community leaders to make sure this program continues to be a success.  Our previous Prevention Specialist Val launched a new program called INSPPIRE (Inviting Students to Promote Prevention, Intervention, and Rape Education) which encouraged the Merced College Community to become active in preventing and intervening if they see signs of sexual assault or dating/domestic violence and Araceli is continuing to support the program while adding her own ideas.


If you would like to be part of our  Merced College program or would like to learn more about our role on campus, feel free to contact our prevention specialist or just send an email to say “Hello!”
