Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month 2019

Campaign

Continued from quote above: “I addressed abusive teen relationships to make the topic more approachable and demonstrated the seven aspects of a healthy relationship. Although nothing changed dramatically right away, the school wellness center soon implemented healthy relationships into their program. More friends opened up to me after the talk, and some even asked me about our Youth Advisory Committee.” Clara is a Member of the Youth Advisory Committee with House of Ruth in Claremont, California.

➱Youth Voices: Get Involved Today!

Youth are the experts in their own lives. We encourage adults to learn from their wisdom and lived experiences, supporting their pursuit of social justice in their communities. This February, we’re asking young people to share their peer organizing strategies to prevent dating violence and advocate for healthy relationships. In the spirit of strategic followership, we’ll amplify their voices throughout the month! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Partnership will be working with our Member Programs and allied organizations to collect youth input. If you’re a young person who would like to be connected with a local organization to begin promoting healthy relationships, send us an email at info@cpedv.org
