February is Teen Violence Awareness Month
February 7th #wearorange
With 1 in 3 teens impacted by teen dating violence & abuse, and only 33% disclosing these experiences, NAM is working to empower teens to not only report the behavior, but to also learn how to recognize the early signs and red flags that could indicate future abusive behaviors. By educating teens early, it is a goal to prevent domestic violence and abuse before it ever happens with the Violence Education Prevention program that NAM’s Family Violence Center offers. Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, or TDVAM, is the month that NAM amplifies these efforts in alignment with awareness campaigns created by national organizations, such as Love Is Respect.
Each February, young adults and their loved ones across the nation raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence through Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM). This annual, month-long effort focuses on advocacy and education to stop dating abuse before it starts.
Tuesday, February 7th, teens and adults are asked to wear orange in support of Teen Dating Violence Awareness. #wearorange
VIOLENCE PREVENTION EDUCATION
NAM’s Violence Prevention Educator is now hosting programs across various schools in the Klein, Aldine, Cy-Fair, Spring and Tomball school districts.
This program promotes awareness with the FVC’s Dating with Respect presentation and facilitating the FVC’s Youth Empowerment Program, which focuses on teen dating violence prevention.
This program provides teens the tools and knowledge to recognize abuse - with the goal of preventing intimate partner violence and domestic abuse before it happens.
