Youth share why they are involved in teen dating violence prevention
Youth Radio, a fabulous program based in Oakland, California (also Los Angeles, Washington DC and Atlanta), created this video from the youth who attended the July Violence Against Women and Teen Dating Violence Prevention Forum held in Sacramento.
Youth Radio’s BOM teen dating violence prevention program uses media to engage youth in a discussion about dating. “Dial Down Your Drama” is a key element of this program that values youth voices being in the forefront.
What other examples do you know where youth have a meaningful voice in prevention efforts?
This is an awesome video! It was a reminder of why we are doing this work and the fact we are really making a difference in getting the message to the upcoming generation. Thanks for posting this!
