Does your School or Community Group need more information about teen dating violence?
Who we are and how we can help
The Center for Domestic Violence Prevention’s Teen Outreach Program started during the 1996-1997 school year. The Teen Outreach Program provides workshops on Teen Dating Violence Prevention to all public high schools in San Mateo County. Each workshop has several goals: to provide teens with a forum within which to discuss the issue of dating-domestic violence; to help them identify the cornerstones of healthy relationships; to clarify their rights and responsibilities in dating: to alert teens to the warning signals of dating-domestic violence; to explore why dating violence happens and why it is never acceptable to control a partner; to provide the resources teens need if they find themselves, their friends, or their family members in an abusive relationship.
We have developed a curriculum with the hope that it will enable teachers, counselors, and youth providers to help put an end to dating-domestic violence. For more information about the curriculum, and additional services, call (650) 652-0800.
The following materials are available from the Center for Domestic Violence Prevention for use in the classroom and teen groups:
