RESOURCES FOR YOUTH ENGAGEMENT STRATEGIES & PREVENTING TEEN DATING VIOLENCE

NYSCADV promotes prevention approaches that lead from awareness to action and values practices that are inclusive of the group that is being engaged, or exposed, to prevention messaging and activities. For instance, in a setting that is addressing the prevention of teen dating violence, NYSCADV’s experience with prevention over the past fifteen years has shown that partnering with youth, cultivating their skills and capacity and engaging them as partners and peers in the programming is a critical factor to the success of the program.
