Although February is the shortest month of the year, there is a LOT to celebrate! While it’s largely known for Black History month and Valentine’s Day, February is also Teen Dating Violence Awareness month! Naturally, W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s Outreach boo-crew felt this was an opportune time to host a Community Education Series session focused on the in’s and out’s of Teen Dating. This free workshop took place in the San Francisco Main Library and was facilitated by the Outreach Boos, Annie and Jaymie. With an intimate audience, the workshop covered information surrounding the stark differences between teen relationships and adult relationships, ways to recognize warning signs, and strategies for creating healthy boundaries and positive interpersonal relationships. Overall, the event was a huge success, as a lot of fruitful discussions emerged and audience members felt they were able to walk away with new perspectives.
If you’re interested in checking out the next Community Education Series, it will take place on Wednesday, March 23rd and the San Francisco Main Public Library located at 100 Larkin Street! This session’s topic will be “Supporting Survivors.” So mark your calendars and don’t miss out!”
