Teen Education Program

WEAVE’s Teen Education Program provides presentations in middle schools, high schools, and various teen groups. The program educates youth between 12 and 18 years old about domestic and sexual violence. The curriculum includes the roots of violence, gender socialization, the cycle of violence, types of abuse, sexual harassment, sexual assault and healthy relationships. The presentation includes a combination of lecture, videos, role play and class participation.

WEAVE Teen Education Program staff also conducts presentations to various members of the community having contact with Teens such as teachers, school nurses, coaches, school administrators and social workers. This is done to provide information on the impact that domestic violence and sexual assault has on Teens and how to identify the warning signs that indicate that domestic violence or sexual assault may have occurred.
