This month, the Safe Passage prevention team is working in schools throughout the six county service area to bring teens a Teen Dating Violence Education. “We have adapted a virtual version to reach as many students as we can. We are displaying a wooden heart with healthy and unhealthy traits of a relationship throughout our High Schools,” Becker said.

This will be an interactive discussion where parents and caregivers learn about warning signs, how to start the conversation and be prepared to discuss healthy vs. unhealthy relationships with your child.
