Safe Dates - 2021 Spring Workshop Series

Safe Dates 2021

Spring Workshop Series

Classes begin March 2021

The Safe Dates Program (Spring 2021 Series) will introduce high school students to life-changing skills and constructive tools to inspire change in themselves, their communities, and the world.

What is “Safe Dates”? Safe Dates is a program that provides dating violence awareness, prevention, and intervention services to youth, ages 14-18, living in the City of Atlanta/Fulton County. The program is facilitated through AVA’s partnership with two area high schools: Maynard T. Jackson and Carver STEAM High Schools. The program includes classes using the Safe Dates curriculum and comprehensive, victim-centered advocacy to increase dating violence awareness in the schools and surrounding areas. Due to COVID-19, activities will take place virtually until it is safe to deliver services in-person.

Through the spring series, students will have interactive opportunities for participants to:

· Strengthen life skills

· Raise awareness of what constitutes healthy and abusive dating relationships

· Raise awareness of dating abuse and its causes and consequences

· Become equipped with the skills and resources to help themselves and/or their peers in abusive dating relationships

· Become equipped with the skills to develop healthy dating relationships, including positive communication, anger management, and conflict resolution.

The Safe Dates Virtual Workshop Series

We are striving to engage 160 students in this exciting and inspiring series, will consist of interactive discussions, workshops, and entertainment. Participation is limited…
