Dating Violence Education: This program partners with schools and youth organizations to develop curriculum to educate youths about healthy relationships. Education includes warning signs of a partner who may become abusive, a dating bill of rights, the cycle of violence and control wheel as they manifest in youth relationships, and information about how to get assistance for themselves, their friends, or family members. To arrange for a speaker, call (310) 264-6646, Ext. 221.
T.R.A.C.I.E. (Teen Relationship Advice, Counseling, Information & Education):
Sojourn’s relationship expert is a link youths can use with an increased feeling of anonymity. For up-to-date information on dating violence, warning signs and resources, email T.R.A.C.I.E. at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out her MySpace page at www.myspace.com/asktracie.
Sojourn recognizes that there are some youth populations who experience relationship violence but have very limited access to resources. For this reason, Sojourn works with other providers such as OPCC’s Night Light, a project aimed at identifying and assisting runaway/thrown away youths whose homelessness or other compounding issue may hinder their ability to access domestic violence services and education.
