Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

February 1 marked the beginning of National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. DVCC Teen PeaceWorks groups throughout our communities will be engaging in activities and events to promote awareness and information about abuse within teen dating relationships. Some of the activities include setting up informational tables, displaying life-size silhouettes depicting stories of teen victims, airing Public Service Announcements about teen dating violence on school networks and visiting school health classes to discuss dating violence.

In its next issue eVoices will feature photos of the teens and their ongoing efforts to provide fellow students, parents, school staff and community members with awareness about the prevalence and the dangers of dating violence and information on ways to help and get help. DVCC is very proud of and grateful to the members of Teen PeaceWorks, many of whom have completed a nine-hour training course on intimate partner violence, for the work they have done and continue to do in this important area.
