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?
