DID YOU KNOW?
- 1 in 3 teens experience dating violence.
- Adolescent girls in abusive relationships are approximately 5 times more likely to become pregnant than girls in non-abusive relationships.
- Most victims murdered by their significant other over the last ten years in Georgia began their relationship with their abuser while between the ages of 13 and 24.
PADV’s Annual Teen Summit is an excellent opportunity for teens and adults to learn about the issue of teen dating violence, how to address it and the role they can play in establishing healthy relationships.
If you're a teen...
It can be challenging to find your voice when you’re in a relationship with someone who hurts you or makes you feel bad. It can also be difficult to know if a relationship is good for you or if there have been warning signs. PADV’s Teen Summit is a fun and interactive day full of workshops, giveaways and sensational performances that help youths navigate the mixed signals of dating, establish personal boundaries and understand what’s okay and what’s not in a relationship.
If you're a parent...
It can be challenging to educate your adolescent on what a healthy, respectful and mutually empowering relationship looks like amidst a culture of contrary depictions. Education and early intervention are two of the primary ways to prevent intimate partner violence, both of which are provided with PADV’s Teen Summit. In addtion to teaching adults the warning signs of unhealthy teen dating, it also equipps them with tools to effectively address the issue.
Each year, PADV is honored to have the partnership of many companies and individuals who help us prevent future occurrences of intimate partner violence by funding our efforts to educate youths on healthy relationships.
