The Relationships & Decisions Teen Trainer Dating Abuse and Bully Prevention Program is a program that trains nominated local Jewish high school teen leaders to educate other teenagers about bullying and dating abuse. Curriculum content includes the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships, both dating relationships and friendships, early identification of abuse warning signs, how stereotypes and self-esteem impact our friendship and relationship choices, types of bullying and prevention, coping strategies, and seeking help.The teen trainers use innovative and interactive teaching techniques, including large sized magnets, videos, games and websites as a means of engaging the teen audience.
Once trained, these teens, under the direct guidance and supervision of the Domestic Abuse Program Director, teach the curriculum to other teens in the community. This innovative approach of teens hearing this content from peers allows teens to be part of the solution to this social issue, and additionally, allows the teen audience members to feel more comfortable receiving the program from their peers, opposed to an adult professional.
All attendees will receive 3 hours of community service for attending.
