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, provide prevention education, and promote healthy relationships. Teen dating violence is an adverse childhood experience that affects millions of young people in the United States. According to the California Partnership To End Domestic Violence 1 in 3 youth experience teen dating violence, but prevention is seriously underfunded in California.

Empower Yolo’s After School Safety and Enrichment for Teens (ASSETs) program at Woodland High School will host its annual month-long TDVAM campaign to help educate local teens on the issues, provide a safe space, and equip them with healthy relationship skills.  Empower Youth Community Service Club at Davis High School and Emerson Junior High School will also be participating in TDVAM activities throughout the month.  Thank you to Woodland Presbyterian Church for sponsoring Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month! We appreciate their continued support.
