Meeting monthly between November and May, TeenSafe will work with a group of Jewish tenth grade girls, providing opportunities to develop leadership skills using a fun and dynamic group model. The group will learn and explore the meaning of healthy, unhealthy, and abusive behavior in dating relationships. Using their new skills and knowledge about sparking social change, they will plan and implement a community project designed to engage their peers and raise awareness about teen dating violence in their communities.
Along the way, we’ll get to know each other, talk about how we can provide leadership in our communities on this issue, and think about what might work and not work in getting the word out. We’ll also laugh, have fun and discover how powerful we can be when supporting each other and working together. Plus, I’ve been told there will be great snacks to help keep our energy up! (Dietary laws will be observed.)
