This is a story about an organization called “Safe Passage” that deals with a growing problem of Teen Dating Violence. it has been estimated that over 25% of all teens have experienced some form of abuse in their dating relationships.
“The national statistic stands at one in three adolescents will be a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. This issue is why we praise our youth council for standing up against abuse and making a difference in our community. The goal of this group is to educate their peers, parents, adults and the community about the issue of dating abuse to help them understand how to identify what is healthy, how to talk to their children and how to make a difference in the lives of others.”
February was Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, an effort to draw attention to this growing problem.
“Once the cycle of abuse sets in, it is very difficult to break the cycle …. It’s crucial to talk with my peers about this issue because now is the age at which people need to be cognizant about their roles in relationships, before abusive habits form.”
