Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month

February is Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month!

Dear Community Partner,

Please join us in recognizing February as Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month (TDVPM). The theme for 2022 is “Talk About It”, set by the organization Love Is Respect, a national organization bringing awareness to teen dating violence. TDVPM is a call to action for youth and the adults who support them to have conversations about relationships and how to navigate them in healthy and safe ways.

It is important for us to Talk About It because we know that teen dating violence happens. We know that talking around it or avoiding the topic is not helping. We know that talking about such a challenging subject is scary and intimidating. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still list teen dating violence as a public health crisis. And the pandemic has only increased the instances that go unrecognized and the number of youth who are not receiving support.

To enhance this important work, we have an updated Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month (TDVPM) Toolkit. Inside you will find information about resources, discussion starters, activities, and handouts about teen dating violence. Our hope is that you use any or all of what is included to start conversations with the teens in your life and enhance your knowledge about healthy relationships, which are the antidote to dating violence. Included in the toolkit are activity suggestions ranging from five minute conversations to full lesson plans, so there are many options to fit any time you have available.

In addition to Talking About It, we challenge you to “go orange with Prevail” by wearing an orange article of clothing on February 4th and post a picture online using the hashtag #GoOrangePrevail.

Thank you for your support and active involvement with the teens in our community. We really cannot bring about change without you!
