I hope this email finds you well. February is Teen dating violence awareness and prevention month, and we are rolling out a new program Teen Talk about Respect & Love.
Did you know that 1 in 3 teens is a victim of physical, emotional, or verbal abuse from a dating partner? Did you know that 1 in 4 dating teens are abused and harassed online or via text by their partner?
Yet, 81% of parents believe teen dating violence is not an issue.
With Teen Talk about Respect & Love, our goal is to educate about youth violence and stop teen dating violence before it begins. During the preteen and teen years, young people are learning the skills they need to form positive, healthy relationships with others, and it is therefore an ideal time to promote healthy relationship and prevent patterns of teen dating violence that can last into adulthood.
“Our schools need to be safe havens for all students, and it is critical that we provide school leaders with tools and resources to help them become stronger partners in reducing teen dating violence and other forms of gender-based violence… like bullying, teen dating violence has far-reaching consequences for the health and life outcomes of victims. We need to do everything we can to make sure all students are safe.” U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
We as a community need to protect our youth from dating violence.
To support this effort, Quality Day Foundation will be selling sunstone/hematite bracelets through beadthepurpose.com Every bracelet that is bought in the month of February one will be given to a teen.
