The Let’s Talk Respect Program is about ending teen dating violence by creating a community that empowers teens to be confident and build strong healthy relationships, fostering a culture of respect at home, in school, and online.
Jewish Family Services is committed to empowering young women and promoting healthy relationships. Through the Let’s Talk Respect program, we build self-esteem, educate, and create girl leaders who are committed to influencing their peers. Let’s Talk Respect will be marketed to all high school girls in Franklin County through online marketing and strong community partnerships
The approach is a community based, collaborative approach to engage and educate teen girls on the topics of violence prevention, bullying, cyber abuse, self-esteem, empowerment and leadership, providing them with the skills and tools they need to identify unhealthy relationships and educate and support their peers. Be a part of this initiative where awareness, leadership and skill building are the center points.
