Give Back on #GivingTuesday!

November 27th, 2017

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes #GivingTuesday! To help celebrate this global day of giving on Tuesday, November 28th, AWARE® Teen Advisory Board members came up with ten ways to give back in addition to making a donation as a part of JCADA's Give $10 Share 10 Challenge. 

Here are the AWARE® Teen Advisory Board's ten ways to support victims and raise awareness about teen dating violence on #GivingTuesday:
  1. Share facts about teen dating violence and local support resources on your own social media. Create your own or follow AWARE® on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook for helpful information to re-post!
  2. Give out AWARE® & JCADA fact sheets and brochures at your school.
  3. Advocate for more teen dating violence prevention and healthy relationship education in health classes.
  4. Submit op-eds about teen dating violence and available resources for victims to schools and local papers.
  5. Use morning assemblies or announcements as an opportunity to educate and raise awareness schoolwide.
  6. Create an educator toolkit for teachers and club leaders with helpful fact sheets, current events articles, and relevant books and movies.
  7. Think up some creative places for educational flyers (inside bathroom stalls or locker notes).
  8. Host a viewing party of a relevant movie for friends or a school club followed by a discussion of the issues.
  9. Start the conversation! Let people know when and where you'll be available to chat with them if they have any questions about teen dating violence or if they need to be connected to support resources.
  10. Give out awareness pins with factoids about teen dating violence and ask people to wear them show their support for victims.
