What can youth workers--and the young people they work with--do about dating violence? Two NCFY podcasts give a youth perspective on the answer to that question.
Two years ago, NCFY spoke with a young woman who survived acquaintance rape at age 17. She gives advice about how to get help after sexual assault or rape and talks about what others can do to support victims. Listen to "A Long Road to Healing."
Last year, we interviewed two young women about their attempts to understand dating violence in their Chicago neighborhood and what they and other teens are doing about the problem. Their work was part of a program of the Chicago nonprofit ALSO, the Alliance of Local Service Organizations. Listen to "Chicago Youth Say No to Dating Violence."
