Teen dating community
Each year, the DVCC works with middle and high school Wellness Centers and school nurses statewide to provide teen dating violence awareness and prevention education.
Activities that reach tweens, teens and young adults include interactive resource tables, school “lunch & learns” as well as classroom awareness sessions.
Teens successfully completing the program received the donated prom dresses to wear at this year’s celebration, which incorporated important community cultural traditions, and builds on the education and outreach conducted through our Domestic Violence Prevention Program to reach even more students in our communities about this important topic. The program is made possible through a generous grant from Hope Line from Verizon.
