To prevent and respond to youth violence

"Most of my experience in supporting victims revolved around supporting adults. I had experience and training in supporting children and youth, but it was not as detailed as this. I loved the advocacy lense, culminated with youth involvement programs aimed at understanding things from their perspective. I loved the app that revealed current language and terms used by today's youth. That is helpful to know as an advocate, investigator or parent."

- Eric B., Certified Trusted Adult Ally

Trusted Adult Ally Training

Not every student has the benefit of caring friendships, healthy relationships, access to an adult ally, or a stable and happy home. But, every student deserves and needs a "trusted adult" in their lives, especially when they are going through interpersonal violence (bullying, dating abuse, sexual violence, domestic violence, gender-based violence, harassment, cyber abuse, and stalking).

Trusted Adult Ally Training is for:

  • parents

  • caregivers

  • teachers

  • school counselors

  • coaches

  • school resource officers

  • youth pastors

  • or anyone who interacts with youth and teens on a daily basis.
