Course Description

Relationships Matter is an evidence-based teen dating violence prevention model developed by the Centers for Disease Control that includes prevention strategies for individuals, peers, families, schools, and neighborhoods. It focuses on teaching 11-14-year-olds healthy relationship skills before they start dating and reducing behaviors that increase the risk for dating violence.

We are looking for volunteers to help us get this important program up and running. Interested? Let’s talk!
