Teen Dating Prevention Month
The numbers are shocking. 1 in 4 teens self-report physical, emotional, verbal or sexual violence each year in the United States. 11% of Indiana high school students report they had been forced to have sexual intercourse- a number much higher than the national average. Nobody wants to hear these statistics, but they cannot be ignored.

Here’s where the YWCA North Central Indiana is stepping in. Our Teen dating Violence Prevention Specialist is continuing to provide education to students in local Counties. This specialist will teach the danger signs of an abusive relationship and guide students to help others or seek help when needed.
