Teen Dating Violence Interventions & Prevention Curriculum

Under this section, can you update with the following:
Recognizing the importance of prevention, DVSBF established a dedicated team to offer Youth Prevention and Outreach Programs. These programs aim to empower the youth in our local schools and the community we serve by providing a range of initiatives aimed at ending unhealthy relationships and violence before they start.
  • Girls Circle and The Council groups: These groups meet once a week for an hour and a half giving youth a safe place to build upon their critical thinking, social and emotional skills using evidence based curriculum.
  • In their shoes: In their shoes is an experiential learning tool used to give youth an understanding of what an unhealthy relationship looks like. Participants become one of six teens who have experienced teen dating violence and make choices based on their scenario. This is a great way to start a conversation about teen dating violence.
  • In Class presentations: Get the conversation started with an in class presentation tailored to fit your audience. Presentations include information about healthy relationships, sings your in an unhealthy relationship and steps youth can take to get out of one.

Violence is 100% preventable, our services are 100% free.

Please contact our youth prevention advocates to schedule an appointment or to learn more about our programs and services.
