Children & Youth

Programs presented at elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Bucks County address domestic and dating violence awareness and prevention in an effort to stop this issue before it starts.

Peace Works! and Choose Kind: It Works

Peace Works! and Choose Kind: It Works, are two curricula designed to provide elementary school students with information and skills for recognizing, building, and maintaining healthy relationships. Over the course of five weeks with Peace Works, and three weeks with Choose Kind, A Woman's Place (AWP) educators will explore with students various concepts relating to this overall theme. Concepts include:

  • Friendships/healthy relationships
  • Tolerance (accepting and embracing differences in oneself and in others)
  • Self-Esteem
  • Communication
  • Aggressive vs. Assertive vs. Submissive Behaviors
  • Empathy
  • Bullying

Promoting Healthy Relationships and Safe Homes, Flourishing Lives

Promoting Healthy Relationships and Safe Homes, Flourishing Lives, are programs for middle and high school students that focus on applying healthy relationship skills to pre-teen and teenage relationships. Through a blend of discussion, interactive activities, videos, and stories, these programs raise awareness about the issue of dating violence and its impact on kids, families, and communities, as well as the resources and options available to students experiencing abuse or violence in their relationships.

Working Together to Keep Our Community Safe

Working Together to Keep Our Community Safe is a dating violence awareness and prevention program geared toward adults. Through videos, discussion, and interactive activities, school staff, parents, and other community adults will gain a clearer understanding of the dynamics of abusive relationships - including early warning signs - and team intervention strategies to promote safer dating.
