The "Dating Violence" prevention and awareness program has two components:

1. "Bar Patrol" Program (in the summer months - when funding is available)

2. "Peer Support Worker" Training Program (in high schools in Muskoka and Parry Sound)

Peer Support Worker Training Program and Youth Outreach Peer Support Worker Training Program and Youth Outreach
Studies have shown that it is far more likely that teens will speak to a friend before a turning to a parent, teacher, or school guidance counsellor.

By providing peer support and advocacy, more teens in our community are better equipped to deal with disclosures and intervention regarding incidents of date rape (and other forms of dating violence).

The goals of our prevention and advocacy youth projects are to seek behavioural changes and to increase the likelihood that students will intervene in situations of dating violence.

Child sexual abuse does not usually involve physical violence. Because children are generally trusting, violence is not needed to get them to co-operate. (Committee Against Rape and Sexual Assault, 1985)
