Donate Now to Support Our "Love Shouldn't Hurt" Teen Program
Your generosity allows us to continue to expand our award-winning "Love Shouldn't Hurt" teen prevention program.
The program has three components:
- Workshops: We conduct interactive workshops in middle schools, high schools, colleges and community-based sites. Young people are empowered with potentially life-saving information on abuse, engage in role playing scenarios that distinguish between abusive and healthy relationships, learn about community resources, and receive hotline cards and other resource information that encourages them to call if they or a friend need help with abuse.
- STAR Peer Leadership Program: Young people that accept our challenge to join STAR (Students Terminating Abusive Relationships) come together in their schools and communities to design and implement awareness events that promote healthy relationships based on equality, respect, and trust.
- Teen Symposium: At our annual symposium, students learn about dating violence and healthy relationships, engage in a dialogue about the issue, and are challenged to make a difference by joining our STAR peer leadership program. We also offer separate workshops for educators and counseling professionals.
