Teen Summit: Something for EveryoneEveryone deserves to be in a healthy and safe relationship but, communication is key to exercising mutual respect, establishing healthy boundaries and opening honest dialogue.
If you are a teen we understand that it can be challenging to find your voice when you’re in a relationship with someone who hurts you or makes you feel bad.
If you are a parent or play an important role in the lives of teenagers 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.
PADV’s Teen Summit is an excellent place to learn about the issues surrounding teen dating violence with fun and interactive workshops and guest speakers.
Adult or teenager, it’s important that you come to Teen Summit, find your voice and learn that you have choices.
Admission is free, but space is running out.
