STOP THE VIOLENCE !
Located on the island of Oahu, Hawai'i, The Teen Alert Program at the Domestic Violence Action Center offers teen dating violence prevention workshops and intervention through teen advocacy. We present teen dating violence and building healthy relationship workshops to intermediate and high schools across the state. The teen victim advocate provides the teen with dating violence education, helps them gain safety and supports them in all avenues of healing and building healthier relationships. In working with teens, we have found that by the time Hawai'i students reach their senior year in high school, half of them will know someone who has been in an abusive relationship. Thus, the mission of the Teen Alert Program is to nurture the voices of youth in our island communities and to spread the message that it takes both love and courage to end the abuse.
