Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

Dating violence is more common than people think, especially among teens and young adults: one in three teens in the US will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults. Every February, NEWS works hard to bring awareness about dating violence and healthy relationships to students all through Napa County.

We are so excited to announce the theme for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month 2021 is Know Your Worth. Know Your Worth is all about self-empowerment! Every young person is deserving of a healthy, loving relationship. This year, we are working with top national organizations like and to bring students fun and creative ways to learn about and show respect for each other, and promote healthy relationships through our #orange4love campaign. We have custom ZOOM backgrounds (below) for students and teachers, #statisticssaturday social media posts, virtual presentations with 7 different youth groups, and much more planned!

In gratitude,

Carla Andrade-Maston, NEWS Prevention, Education, & Outreach Program Manager
