About Break the Cycle
Break the Cycle is a domestic violence law center that promotes the health and protects the rights of youth.
Our comprehensive programs provide positive intervention in the lives of youth as they are forming their first relationships.
We encourage youth to take action and mobilize to raise awareness in their communities about domestic violence and its impact on their peers. We are promoting youth as the next generation of leaders in the domestic violence prevention movement.
Break the Cycle’s preventive education program teaches teens about domestic violence, healthy relationships and the legal options and responsibilities of young victims. The interactive curriculum connects students to practical tools and confidential resources for information and advice. We also work to increase awareness about teen dating violence in the community at-large through public awareness campaigns, tabling and our website.
Break the Cycle helps young victims, ages 12 to 24, achieve safe, violence-free lives through legal advice, referrals and counsel. Our public policy efforts work to ensure that young people are protected by domestic violence laws and that funding exists to support programs to help youth.
