Creative Writing Opportunity For Youth In Our Community!
In honor of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, we are holding a creative writing opportunity for youth 12-25 years of age in our community.
Many people are unaware of how prevalent teen dating violence is.
In the US, one in three teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults—and nearly half of college women report experiencing abusive dating behavior.
Here in Nevada County, 80 percent of youth ages 12-25 reported having experienced, or knowing someone who has experienced, domestic violence in a survey conducted by the Nevada County Community Action Team (NCCAT, a community volunteer group led by the Community Beyond Violence Prevention Team).
