If you had to guess, how many young adults in your community truly feel safe in their relationships? Of those that say they feel safe, how many do you think can't recognize the difference between caring, supportive relationships and controlling, manipulative abusive ones?

The prevalence of teen dating violence in your community may surprise you. In the U.S.:

  • About 1 in 12 high school students experienced physical dating violence (CDC)
  • 1 in 12 also say they've experienced sexual dating violence (CDC)
  • 26.6% of LGBTQ students and 14.1% of heterosexual students have been electronically bullied ( Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System)

The most effective way to protect young people from all forms of dating violence is through prevention and education. Designed expressly for young people ages 12 and above, the third edition of Safe Dates: A Teen Relationship Abuse Prevention Curriculum is an evidence-based program that equips young people with the skills needed to create and foster positive relationships.

I've purchased Safe Dates. Why do we need specific training?

Shifting community norms begins with in-depth awareness and education. During our Safe Dates training, Morgan Jones, prevention specialist, will walk you through the curriculum, ensuring you're prepared to administer this program with the expertise and insight needed to inspire safe dating for teens in your community.

  • Understand the risks and impacts of physical, sexual and emotional violence

I haven't purchased Safe Dates. What is it?
