Dating Violence Prevention in the Green Zone

The American Medical Association reports that 1 out of 5 teens has at some point been physically or sexually assaulted by a dating partner. This national statistic is both sad and shocking. An alarming 81 percent of parents surveyed believe that dating violence is not a major issue.
February is National Dating Violence Prevention Month. To acknowledge this event the National Center for the Prevention of Community Violence has introduced a new prevention program called Green Zone Relationships.
The program allows those who are in unhealthy relationships to recognize the situation and make a positive change.
The new initiative is going to be introduced nationwide and is being piloted at Menchville High School and Christopher Newport University in Newport News Virginia.
