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" "Peer Support Worker Training Program"

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 this prevention and advocacy project is to seek behavioural changes and to increase the likelihood that students will intervene in situations of dating violence.
