Relationship Violence Curricula for Runaway and Homeless Youth

An key component of the Hollywood Homeless Youth Partnership (HHYP) in Hollywood, CA was the development of two “Intimate Partner Abuse Prevention Curricula” specifically for runaway and homeless youth – one for minors (youth ages 17 and under) and one for young adults (youth 18 and above) reflecting the developmental differences between the two groups.  The curricula were pilot tested, and modifications were made after feedback from facilitators and youth. Both curriculum, the results of over two years of research, exploration, and experience in the areas of intimate partner abuse and runaway and homeless youth, is designed for use in drop in centers and shelters with youth new to the streets and chronically homeless youth.
