Testimonials “I’ve learned how to deal with unhealthy relationships by using the tools (the educators) have given me.

Lessons on sexual violence are often included as part of the Healthy Relationships curriculum.The lessons utilize a variety of teaching tools to meet students’ different learning needs, including but not limited to: visual materials (including a short video depicting one example of an unhealthy relationship between teenagers), interactive relationship scenarios and games, examples of current, popular music and advertisements and the messages they send about relationships, and skill-building exercises around setting boundaries and being an ally.All Healthy Relationships programs are founded on the belief that: We believe that young people are capable of making positive, responsible choices in their relationships and are our greatest asset in the fight to ending teen dating violence, but that they can do so only after being provided with the knowledge they need to act.So all in all, this is a wonderful thing you are doing; you have made such an impact in my life.” – High school student “I always thought that someone was jealous about their partner because that person really loves the other person.But it is not and it does make sense that someone who is jealous could kill someone, or commit suicide.
