Presented in collaboration with the Rutgers School of School Work and the NJ Coalition to End Domestic Violence

As the Covid-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests are sweeping this nation, youth are trying to figure out their role in creating societal change during a health crisis. It may seem that working towards dating and sexual violence prevention should be put on hold, yet the discussions of safety and respect as schools work to prevent dating and sexual violence help provide teens the language and tools they need to build safer, violence-free relationships and communities – making this topic more relevant than ever. This webinar will introduce middle and high school administrators, teachers, and students to the importance of addressing sexual and dating violence now, before college, and will provide an in-depth look at how some districts have incorporated dating abuse and sexual violence prevention. Topics will include an overview of Federal/State policies, available resources and curriculums, and research-based tools for engagement that will make any programming more effective. We invite public and private schools to send a team of students/administrators/teachers to attend. The webinar would be structured in three parts: 1) overview of what an effective, collaborative approach looks like; 2) breakout discussion identifying the key stakeholders within the middle and high school community to involve; 3) group discussion as a team for how to bring this information back to their respective school community.
