"Battered Women's Support Services YOUth Ending Violence is a dating violence prevention program that engages youth in being part of the solution in ending gender violence. A team of two facilitators, one female and one male, facilitate workshops for youth and discuss the roots of violence by looking at the ways in which society and media influence what it means to be a young man and a young woman. Facilitators also discuss different types of abuse, healthy relationships, how to help a friend who is being abused, and effective bystander intervention.
We facilitate workshops for youth in high schools, both mainstream and alternative, as well as community organizations throughout the lower mainland. Our goal with the workshops is by providing relevant education to youth about violence in dating relationships we hope we are helping to end violence."
