February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month​

The Strategic Initiatives team works closely with youth serving organizations and local high schools to provide education and awareness on all of the campaigns and initiatives. 

We engage our youth throughout the year by conducting presentations on teen dating violence, healthy relationships, social media safety, sex trafficking and consent, coordinating resource fairs and sponsoring awareness-themed sporting events and contests.
