Youth Outreach Program

By teaching methods such as the youth bystander approach, HAWC empowers youth to know the signs of domestic abuse and how to ask for help if they or someone they know may be experiencing violence.

Violent relationships in adolescence often put victims at higher risk for substance abuse, eating disorders, risky sexual behavior, and also makes them more likely to enter into a violent relationship again when they mature.*

Our HAWC youth outreach educator can come to your school or agency and provide training to your staff or youth constituents on the different types of relationship violence and the services that may be available to them. We can offer:

  • School- or agency-wide anti-violence training
  • Support groups
  • Custom-made presentations based on issues specific to your organization (such as self-esteem or bullying)
  • Healthy relationships presentations
