adults >> getting educated

Whether you’re an educator, youth worker, parent, or coach,
we know that you’re invested in the teens in your life.


While we encourage you to learn about dating abuse and methods to talk with teens
experiencing abuse
, we also challenge you to promote and support youth-led anti-
violence initiatives.

Peer leadership programs engage youth in their schools and communities. Effective
programs build individual leadership skills, provide opportunities for youth to develop
awareness of community issues, and encourage youth-led programs to educate peers
and the community at-large.
