DO YOU: BUILDING YOUTH RESILIENCE THROUGH CREATIVE EXPRESSION

DO YOU addresses youth violence, dating and sexual violence, sexual harassment, and bullying by confronting its root causes and enhancing protective factors (also referred to as building resilience) to promote positive development and healthy relationships for age 13-16 years old.

The prevention strategy takes place in 2 phases...

1: DO YOU

Teens create a ‘zine about their own cultural backgrounds, values, experiences and goals over the course of 10 sessions. Sessions relate to the goals above and open with interactive activities and end in creative expression.

2: DO SOMETHING

After completing 10 sessions, teens devise and implement a community-based project that helps their community and enhances their sense of value and belonging in the community

The UnCurriculum (the facilitator’s guide for DO YOU) uses primary prevention principles and creative expression in a strategy intended to prevent violence before it starts. 


MORE RESOURCES FOR WORKING WITH TEENS 

TEEN DATING VIOLENCE RESOURCE:

HOMEWORK FOLDERS

A great way to let teens know about trusted online resources for youth.

The outside and inside panels illustrate teen online resources regarding healthy relationships, dating and sexual violence, and where to get help.

Two versions of the folders are available: Middle School (top) and High School (bottom) to provide appropriate resources for different age groups and communities.

The left inside panel is die-cut to allow community advocates to insert their hotline or business card.

 


ENDING RAPE CULTURE ACTIVITY ZINE

HOW DO WE ENVISION A BETTER WORLD?

This zine includes talking points and activities to help you facilitate that visioning conversation and support or shape your approach to violence prevention work.

The Rape Culture Pyramid and Ending Rape Culture Activity were created by the Virginia Sexual and Domestic Violence Action Alliance as a resource for community agencies, educators, and organizers to better understand and talk about rape culture.



BUILDING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS ACROSS VIRGINIA: A FACILITATOR'S GUIDES FOR TEEN DATING VIOLENCE PREVENTION
