This program equips young people with violence-prevention tools and strategies just as they’re beginning to start dating and forming romantic relationships. Through interactive workshops, participants explore: thinking critically about social media, body image, self-esteem and values, love vs. friendship, socio-cultural identity, healthy communication, consent and sexuality. Workshop themes and discussions are guided by participants’ personal experiences and interests. A youth committee is in charge of creating a wider impact in the community and developing an intervention tool to raise awareness among their peers. The program also offers training to adults who have teens in their lives, including parents, caregivers, and facilitators from partner organizations.
