Teen Dating Violence (DV) Prevention and Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in teen and 20-something relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.

The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about dating violence, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.

The History of Teen DV Month

For years, young people across the nation have organized to put a stop to dating abuse. With their adult allies, they achieved a major victory in 2005 when the importance of addressing teen dating abuse was highlighted in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

The following year, Congress followed the lead of dozens of national, state and local organizations in sounding the call to end dating abuse. Both Chambers declared the first full week in February “National Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Week.” Then in 2010, they began dedicating the entire month of February to teen dating violence awareness and prevention.

Sexual violence is an issue that affects everyone in a community regardless of age. All of us have a role in building safe, healthy relationships and communities. Promoting such relationships begins by strengthening communication and instilling respect for   self and others in our children.

Healthy sexuality is emotional, social, cultural and physical.  It is our values, attitudes, feelings, interactions and behaviors. It changes with time and experience.

Some of the topics to be covered are:

  • Why it’s important to talk with our children
  • Modeling and promoting healthy boundaries
  • Protecting children from sexual predators
  • Our role in prevention
  • Healthy relationship choices

What’s Teen DV Month?

Teen Dating Violence (DV) Prevention and Awareness Month is a national effort to raise awareness about abuse in youth relationships and promote programs that prevent it during the month of February.

The repercussions of teen dating violence are impossible to ignore – they hurt not just the young people victimized but also their families, friends, schools and communities. Throughout February, organizations and individuals nationwide are coming together to highlight the need to educate young people about healthy relationships, teach healthy relationship skills and prevent the devastating cycle of abuse.

The History of Teen DV Month

For years, young people across the nation have organized to put a stop to dating violence. With their adult allies, they achieved a major victory in 2005 when the importance of addressing teen dating violence was highlighted in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act.

Both Chambers declared the first full week in February “National Teen Dating Violence Prevention and Awareness Week.” Then in 2010, Congress began dedicating the entire month of February to teen dating violence awareness and prevention.

Now in its second year, Teen DV Month is celebrated by leaders in government, student bodies,  schools, youth service providers, community-based organizations, parents and more. Join us in promoting awareness of and preventing teen dating violence.
