This past weekend, we were thrilled to host a conference for our National Youth Advisory Board. Our YAB (as we affectionately call them) is made up of bright and motivational teens and young adults. All are committed to ending dating abuse and actively working towards this goal in their communities.
The conference included presentations from both the Break the Cycle staff and loveisrespect. We discussed everything from the dynamics of abuse to using social media to bring about change. While our staff may have been the ones offering information, it was the YAB themselves who were truly leading the conference. The YAB were constantly brainstorming and collaborating. You’ll be seeing the outcome of their ideas at the conference soon.
