In honor of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, we are shedding light on the experience of youth survivors of Teen Dating Violence.
In the U.S., 1 in 3 teens will experience some form of Teen Dating Violence (physical, verbal, sexual, emotional, financial or cyber abuse) and the consequences can change the entire course of their lives.
We have compiled some of the experiences from the approximately 4,000 Contra Costa youth we served over the last two years in our Youth Education and Support Services (YESS) program. We want to give their stories a voice and spread awareness to the many teens we have yet to reach. Please help us by viewing and sharing this myth-busting video.
