About Us

No Means No Worldwide (NMNW) is an internationally acclaimed training academy for sexual violence prevention, intervention and recovery for women and children. Our goal is to end rape around the world. We train youth instructors from extreme risk environments to deliver IMpower, a dual-gender course that teaches girls to set boundaries, stand up and defend themselves and boys to challenge rape culture, ask for consent and intervene in attack. Stanford University researchers have found that the 12-hour IMpower course drops rape rates by 50%, which has led to endorsements from the World Health Organization, the CDC, UNICEF, USAID, PEPFAR, and the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children.
