What We Do
Our approach is simple. We raise awareness to the issues of Teen Dating Violence and Domestic Violence through active volunteerism in our community and nationwide. We strongly believe that through education and action we will be able to increase the prevention of abuse while bringing awareness to these issues as well as Emotional and Verbal Abuse - Subjects often left undiscussed.
START TALKING IN SCHOOLS
Utilizing the Start Talking curriculum with Mecklenburg County CSS, we speak in area high schools and middle schools providing education in health classes on healthy and unhealthy relationships.
EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMS AT DV SHELTERS
Through creating a reading and empowerment program, Word in Action, we have been able to provide reading books, school supplies, and tutoring to children housed in a domestic violence safety shelter.
LOCAL AND NATIONAL ADVOCACY
As a member of the Teen Dating Violence Awareness Committee of Mecklenburg County, we work with several agencies in order to provide education and awareness to our community. Our co-founder, Natasha, is a National Ambassador for the Love is Not Abuse Coalition with Break the Cycle, the leading national nonprofit organization providing comprehensive dating abuse programs exclusively to young people ages 12 to 24.
