This spring, we have had the pleasure of working with a group of Treasure Valley high school students that have a passion for helping the WCA and bringing awareness of teen dating violence to their peers! These Student Leaders have been meeting twice a month to develop resources for teens, plan awareness activities for their schools, and learn about the dynamics of dating abuse and how to help their peers. These dedicated teens are creating change in their community while also earning service hours for projects and developing leadership skills to assist in their future endeavors.
“I believe that it’s important for young people like me to know and be able to identify what healthy and unhealthy relationships look like. I think that by raising awareness of the warning signs, we can break the cycle of abuse at earlier ages and set a precedent for healthier relationships.” – Megan
If you know a teen that would like to participate in the Student Leader program this fall, contact Tracy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
