Too many young people experience dating violence. And too many don't recognize the violence as abuse.

That's why February will once again mark Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. The month-long awareness-raising activities are led by more than a dozen organizations dedicated to ending domestic violence and teen dating abuse. This year's theme is 'Let Your Heart Rule,' a call to help every young person recognize that any kind of abuse in relationships is not acceptable.

The links below will help you and the youth you work with get involved with fighting teen dating violence. And stay tuned for more articles on the subject from NCFY this month.
