On Saturday, September 17th, W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s Outreach Boo-Crew was invited to present to Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep’s Men’s Varsity Basketball team. Here, presenters Annie, Jaymie, and Shaena educated these young gentlemen on the definition of domestic violence as well as its prevalence amongst teens. The Outreach Boos facilitated rich discussions amongst the teammates to help them define healthy relationships, challenge misconceptions of teen relationships, and outline ways to support peers who may be experiencing domestic violence. The presentation ended with an important activity called the “Dating Bill of Rights,” where participants learned how to set healthy boundaries in their own relationships. To the Outreach Boo-Crew’s surprise, Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep’s Men’s Varsity Basketball team and coaches surprised them with various donations, including DVDs, toiletries, and a Wii console! W.O.M.A.N., Inc. is truly thankful and appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with such a generous group! We look forward to working with Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep in the future!
