Participatory Action in Schools: Improving school climate and safety in K-12 schools for sexual and teen dating violence prevention

Wednesday, 18 July 2018

More and more school communities are recognizing that there are powerful opportunities to support healthy teen relationships by elevating youth voices. Building off of CDC’s technical packages that list strategies to improve school climate and safety, prevention practitioners, school personnel and youth are partnering to prevent teen dating violence and other forms of violence. This web conference will feature guests who have used participatory action research and hotspot mapping to identify student and school needs to improve school climate and safety. Join PreventConnect as they share how school communities are creating actions plans with the goal of reducing rates of sexual and domestic violence affecting students. Plans include beginning to change norms to make safety a school-wide issue, modify physical spaces, and change policies to improve school climate.
