It’s #GivingTuesday. Help us empower youth to prevent violence!

Today is the day. We are thrilled to be celebrating GivingTuesday with communities, businesses and organizations across the globe.

The reason

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.
