Empower Yolo Events

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month:

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM), a national effort to help raise awareness about teen dating violence. Throughout the month, Empower Yolo and other organizations nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about dating violence, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the cycle of abuse. Teen dating violence is an issue that impacts everyone – teens, their parents, teachers, friends and the whole community.  Together, we can raise the community’s awareness about teen dating violence and promote safe, healthy relationships. 

In the News: For more information about TDVAM please see Empower Yolo’s February article in the Davis Enterprise at: Empower Yolo: After-school programs promote healthy relationships.

Supporting our teens:  There are several ways the community can help and become involved in supporting teens’ healthy relationships:     

1)  support Empower Yolo’s prevention education programs, which are largely unfunded; donate any time at: empoweryolo.org;

2)  wear orange on Tuesday, February 9 in support of #Orange4Love Day to raise awareness about teen dating abuse;

3) become a sponsor for TDVAM for next year to help us reach even more teens. Thank you to Alpha Chi Omega at UC Davis for sponsoring TDVAM this year and supporting Empower Yolo’s prevention education programs;

4)  Our ASSETs students at Woodland High School and Pioneer High School will be participating in a month long awareness campaign and meme contest to show their support of TDVAM and healthy relationships. Follow their efforts on Facebook at @empoweryolo, on Instagram @empower_yolo and Twitter @empower_yolo. Please see a schedule of their workshops below. For questions about teen dating violence or prevention education please contact: [email protected].

TDVAM is not just about increasing awareness about teen dating violence, it is about equipping our youths with the knowledge and skills they will need to establish and nurture healthy relationships throughout their lives. Supporting them will ensure that our youths experience and maintain healthy relationships for safer and healthier communities in the future.
