Workshops for Kids and Teens: Grades 3-12
JFS Domestic Abuse Education and Action Department offers educational workshops to promote non-violent communication skills, positive self-esteem, personal boundaries and understanding healthy vs. unhealthy relationships. Workshops are designed to be age appropriate and focus on issues relevant to each grade.
Teens Against Relationship Abuse: Grades 9-12
The objective of the program is for teens to educate, refer, and intervene with other teens when they recognize abusive behaviors, and to increase bystander intervention when abuse occurs. Topics taught will include: self-esteem, empowerment, healthy versus unhealthy relationships, signs of dating abuse, peer and bystander intervention and help for both the abused and the abuser. Curricula were created for both middle and high school students.
