FREE Teen Dating Violence Prevention Course
Mondays for 9 weeks, beginning September 14, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Course focuses on the effects that dating violence has on our youth. Through this free course, teens will be discussing healthy relationship boundaries. This will include how to recognize an abusive relationship, communicate in a healthy positive manner and plan for their own safety. The overall goal is to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to have a healthy relationship; know if they are in an abusive relationship, be able to help a friend or family member identify abuse, and, most importantly, how to stay safe.
