Get Involved! New Youth Voices Program in High Schools

Break the Cycle has a new way of getting teens in Los Angeles active around the issue of dating violence. Beginning this fall, our Youth Voices program will be in partnership with high schools classes and youth groups.

We modeled this new program after our highly successful Youth Voices program in Washington, DC, which partners with three different groups of youth at Cesar Chavez Public Charter High School. In Los Angeles, the Peer Helpers class at the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies (LACES) and the TeenSMART program at Asian Pacific Health Care Venture have already agreed to partner with us this fall.

Take Action: Appropriations Alert

With widespread national support, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was expanded earlier this year, focusing resources on providing protections and justice for young victims of violence.

Young people across America experience violence at inordinately high rates and often face unique barriers in getting help to address it.
