Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program

The Teen Dating Violence Prevention Program provided by the Clerk's Office alerts young people to the warning signs of dating violence.

The program:

  • Provides a workshop environment where young people can be open and candid in their discussion of dating violence.
  • Promotes the idea, in a school community, that young people have the opportunity to establish an environment that is violence free.
  • Gives direction on where to go for help if you are a victim of date violence.

The goal of the Dating Violence Prevention Speakers Program is to bring the problem of teen dating violence directly to the individuals most at risk -- the students. Through the use of video, brochures, and additional resource materials on dating violence, specifically trained volunteers from the Circuit Court Clerk's office guide students through discussions on the topic. Only with continued awareness, discussion, and action can we begin to make a difference.
