Today is the day. We are thrilled to be celebrating GivingTuesday with communities, businesses and organizations across the globe.
Healthy Relationships for Youth is a response to gender-based relationship violence. According to the facts:
- Approximately 7 out of 10 teens are in dating relationships
- Dating violence accounts for 7% of total crimes in Canada
- Most victims of dating violence are young women
Why healthy relationships?
School-based teen violence prevention programs have a demonstrated positive impact on reducing the rate of dating violence among youth. They teach youth important skills and knowledge that contribute to their long-term well-being, and foster more respectful school environments.
Invest in youth today
Do you feel moved to support youth in rural Nova Scotia? Your contribution – however small – is an investment in the well-being of a generation. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for the Healthy Relationships for Youth program.
