Join us for a “virtual” teen talk. February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Every year, we come together to address teen dating and provide resources. We want all people to be in healthy relationships. Our teen talk educates teens on the signs of an unhealthy relationship and provides prevention tools.
Parents and teens are encouraged to get involved in the discussion about trends and pressures facing today’s youth. The parent space will focus on the issues and trends for the youth, while the teen talk will focus on teen dating violence and bring awareness towards the issue. Our goal is to see all teens in safe and healthy relationships with their family and friends.
