BLOOM365 trained and certified Trusted Adult Allies provide unbiased guidance, support and safety to youth who disclose experiencing, witnessing or causing emotional, verbal, physical or sexual violence. Trusted Adult Allies are seen by youth as approachable, supportive and available to listen or answer questions without judgment or bias.
Our Allies know how to accurately aid, listen and connect young people dealing with issues such as bullying, gender based violence, and domestic/sexual/teen dating violence to help.
