In Their Shoes: Teen and Dating Violence
The Jennifer Beach Foundation presents In Their Shoes: Teen and Dating Violence workshops with adults and students. In Their Shoes was developed by the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence at the request of a family that lost a daughter in a murder/suicide tragedy. This interactive workshop serves as a training tool for adults who work with teens, such as teachers, counselors, nurses, youth group leaders or parents. Participants learn what dating is like for today’s teens by becoming a teen character (either as a victim or a perpetrator), making choices about their relationships and seeing the results. There is also a classroom version that helps students identify signs of unhealthy relationships and provides resources for anyone who needs help
HOPE & POWER
Hope & Power is a class designed to help build confidence and self-esteem, and to help survivors of domestic violence better manage their financial resources. In the classes participants are instructed on a variety of topics including:
- Net Worth
- Credit Reports
- Financial Aid for education
- Legal advocacy for victims
- Employment counseling
The class is intended to help participants get a better understanding of their personal finances and build confidence in their ability to better manage other areas of their lives.
