For Advocates

With one in three teens experiencing physical or emotional abuse in a relationship, it is more important than ever that we work together to create a comprehensive safety net for youth experiencing dating violence.

Break the Cycle works hard to provide advocates against dating violence with the necessary tools and resources to create effective change for teens.

Are You an Advocate?

Advocates are on the front line of the movement to end domestic and dating violence. You may be:

  • An experienced domestic violence professional ready to apply your expertise to teens in abusive relationships
  • An adult who works with youth or advocates for their rights and wants to learn more about dating violence
  • A new supporter seeking to become a dating violence advocate
  • A young person looking to become a voice against violence in your school or college campus

Regardless, you are a key ally in the movement to end dating violence.

What You Can Do
