February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Each February, teens and advocates nationwide raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence through education and outreach in order to stop dating violence before it happens.

This year’s theme for TDVAM is #LoveLikeThat, and “that” refers to all the different ways we express love in healthy ways. This can range from scheduling a date with your partner, checking in and seeing how they’re doing, to honoring their personal space and time to be with friends.

Follow YouthSpeak's Instagram and stay tuned throughout this month for more information and ways you can get involved.

These trainings are offered to social service providers, advocates, law enforcement, health care workers, clergy, and anyone committed to helping end domestic violence.
