February has been a busy month for our Youth REP’s (Relationship Education Program), working to raise awareness about the prevalence of teen dating violence.  Their passion and engagement in sharing information at their schools and throughout our community about what it looks like to be in a supportive and loving relationship is work that helps further our vision of: “Fostering a community where individuals thrive in healthy relationships.”

In addition to working within their own schools, our Youth REP’s reached out to their community as well, sharing orange-colored carnations and asking people they met in downtown Boise what loving relationships mean to them.  To see the resulting video you can click here.

Prevention work takes passion, energy and commitment – we are so grateful that we have young people who are willing to lead in this effort.  Our goal is to provide them with the support and the tools while they teach us how to best engage with youth, so that we can help decrease incidences of teen dating violence.

Thank you to our community for supporting our work in this area.  Sharing this vision of where we want to be as a community is the first step toward creating the change.

With a grateful heart,

But that isn’t all. Jackson, a 29-year-old from Florida, was also “the first black woman to make it on to Team USA as a speed skater,” and the first black woman to win individual gold at the Winter Olympics, according to NBC coverage.
