DAYS 3 & 4: ACTIVATE

Build community by activating peers and trusted adult allies to work together to cultivate a culture, free of dating abuse, sexual assault and gender based violence

Young people who attend the Academy leave with a greater understanding of the root causes of interpersonal violence and skills to intervene and prevent these experiences, peer to peer.

OUTCOMES:

This experience also provides 13-19 year old Next Gen Advocates with a safe space to cultivate their leadership skills and develop their unique leadership style. Though qualitative and quantitative outcome measures, we expect the Lead Peer Advocate experiences to reflect the following:

1. More familiarity with how to support peer survivors of interpersonal violence (teen dating violence, sexual violence, domestic violence, gender based violence, cyber-stalking, etc.)

2. A decrease in tolerance of violence

3. More empathy and respect for others

4. An increase in peer-to-peer support

5. An increase in community awareness and involvement

6. An increase in self-esteem and self-awareness

7. More confidence in leadership abilities

8. Enhanced communication, conflict resolution, and healthy relationship skills
