Using a train-the-trainer format, teams of youth from each school come together for a dynamic and interactive day of learning about dating violence and woman abuse.
Teams collect information and skills, develop action plans, and then go back to their schools with ideas, strategies, and plans to educate their peers.
These documents should be helpful to anyone working to address dating violence in schools.
At the end of the school year, the teen trainers come back together to share their projects and celebrate their successes.
At the conferences, youth come together and learn about the indicators of abusive behaviour, the warning signs, the role of the media, and how to create healthy relationships.
Teen Dating Violence Policy, TX Education Code 37.0831 (formerly HB121) TX Education Code 37.0831 mandates that each school district in Texas adopt and implement a dating violence policy.
TCFV has been working with a statewide interagency group to develop model policies and collaborate with the Texas Education Agency and the Texas Association of School Boards for effective implementation of the new law.
