February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Dating violence is more common than many people think. One in three teens in the U.S. will experience physical, sexual or emotional abuse by someone they are in a relationship with before they become adults. And nearly half (43%) of dating college women report experiencing violent and abusive dating behaviors.

We encourage you to share information on the prevention of teen dating violence by visiting the websites below or contacting CRC for training.
