Free Resources for Preventing Teen Dating Violence
through Awareness, Education, and Advocacy

Jennifer Ann's Group is pleased to offer these free resources for schools, parents, churches, and other non-profit organizations to use in their efforts to stop teen dating violence.

We designed these tools to align with our strategy of preventing dating abuse through Awareness, Education, and Advocacy. We hope that they will be helpful in your efforts to prevent dating violence.

Awareness

If parents, teachers, and teens are not aware of the significance of teen dating violence, they will not understand the importance of educating teens.

These videos, video games, banners, and printable resources are designed to increase awareness of teen dating violence.


Education

The warning signs of an abusive relationship are essential to assist young people in recognizing the difference between healthy and unhealthy behaviors in dating relationships.

These printable resources, Power and Control Wheel, and video games all provide helpful educational information that assists in identifying dating abuse through incorporation of these warning signs.


Advocacy

In addition to increasing awareness and providing educational information about teen dating violence, it is critical that there are laws in place which provide teens with better protection from abusers as well as requiring schools to teach young people about teen dating violence.

All of the resources on this page should be helpful for sharing with your local school board, state representative, or congressperson to help them understand the importance of supporting policies that will help protect adolescents from dating violence. Please sign and share our petition to advocate for laws which give schools and teens the support they need.
