(The presenter)does a wonderful job of getting participation out of the students.Students who rarely participate in class were getting involved.”“We have our students fill out daily evaluations/reflections of the presentation and we always get excellent responses. They learn a lot and become much more aware of the situation, and are much better prepared to head into the “dating world.” They always enjoy the amount of interactive activities that (the presenter) has them involved in.”“All the information was very appropriate for the target audience. It’s so important that this information is there so that they can have a better understanding of relationships.”“Because of this program I set boundaries with my boyfriend and he respects my sexual and dating boundaries.This special collection emphasizes collaborative and multi-level approaches to the prevention of and response to teen dating violence (TDV).

Women Helping Women’s education department provides Teen Dating Violence Prevention education on healthy and unhealthy relationships, sexual assault, and bystander intervention to empower youth to engage in safe and healthy relationships. We want to empower youth with education and choices as they begin dating, and influence our leaders to make legislative changes that reflect the alarming statistics.
Teenagers are among the most at-risk age group to experience violence in their dating relationships, and one of the most poorly represented and protected by our government and society. We want our youth to know that they have a right to a violence-free relationship, as do those around them.
Women Helping Women’s education programs are evidence-based, interactive and current to ensure a productive, engaging experience.
Our most popular 5-Day Teen Dating Violence Prevention program explores signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships, sexual assault and sexual harassment (including use of social media and technology), consent, bystander intervention, resources to help a friend or loved one and communication skills geared to promote a healthy relationship.
We tailor all of our programs to reflect the needs and time frame of the group and/or educator, and can accommodate various models, mainly small groups and classes.
