Shafia Zaloom is

Dedicated to youth, dedicated to growth.

In a culture that all too often pushes young people to disconnect, evade vulnerability, and prioritize performance, kids are looking for more connection and guidance. Helping young people learn how to cultivate healthy relationships is my deepest offering. 

My work may sound like it’s about consent. But in truth it’s really about love and connection. 

My goal is to help young people understand that strong, ethical boundaries of consent make the lessons of love safe and more powerful. I create spaces in which two skill sets intersect. One is about content: the concrete information young people need if they are to build healthy relationships. The second is the modeling of how to be in a relationship, one that is grounded in authentic connection, appropriate boundaries, healthy vulnerability, and effective communication.
