Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month Initiatives

Crank Up Your Youth Community Action Teams: What’s working in Florida (Webinar)

Young people are working to stop domestic violence and change societal factors that support it. This webinar will examine the domestic violence prevention work of the youth community action team in Dade City, Florida, the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) statewide youth summit, and FCADV statewide youth leadership programs. FCADV will provide examples of how prevention programs can increase youth leadership and engagement.

Our Gender Revolution: Youth Leaders in Action (Webinar)
The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence integrates a social change approach to interrupt the root causes of gender violence fueled by multiple systemic oppressions.  The Our Gender Revolution youth framework explores concepts of gender, inequality, and a vision of the world to end oppression and violence and engages young people as social change agents. On this webinar, presenters from the Idaho Coalition will highlight the 2017 We Choose All of Us campaign for National Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month that directly addresses the current climate of hate and violence in our schools and communities as a model for promoting youth-driven activism for social transformation. The 2017 We Choose All of Us campaign will be available for order and use during Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month and beyond.

#ThisIsDV #TeenDVMonth (Social Media Campaign)

What does teen dating violence look like? Recognizing the tactics used to hurt, intimidate, frighten, and control young people in intimate relationships is critical if we are to take action to address and prevent it. The NRCDV’s #ThisIsDV campaign elevates the voices of youth survivors during Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month to help validate and name their experiences and raise awareness about the multifaceted nature of teen dating violence.

ACE-DV Webinar: Strengthening Hope and Resilience in Children, Youth and Mothers in Domestic Violence Programs- Lessons from Friendship Home

When: 2-3:30 pm Eastern/1-2:30pm Central/11-12:30pm Pacific
Where: Online

Strengths-Centered Advocacy is a unique approach to providing individualized, strengths-based support to survivors of domestic violence and their children. The approach was developed by Friendship Home in Lincoln, Nebraska as a way to more intentionally tap into the power of resilience throughout survivors’ healing processes. Through the use of the Gallup Organizations’ Clifton StrengthsFinder and Clifton Youth StrengthsExplorer tools, survivors and their children are given the opportunity to discover their unique personal talents and identify how this information can be applied to their lives in relevant and meaningful ways. Presented by Julie Havener, Friendship Home’s Coordinator of Strengths-Centered Advocacy, this webinar will highlight how this approach can help to mitigate or repair some of the potential negative impacts of domestic violence on children and youth, while also strengthening protective factors that can lead to resilience across the lifespan.
