Be Project Tells Students to Let Your Hearts Rule for Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

by Emily Roberts | Feb 11, 2013

Teen Dating Violence Month 2013

Be Project Tells Students to Let Your Hearts Rule
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

February is Teen Dating Violence (TDV) Awareness Month. One in three students reports experiencing some form of abuse. Every young person deserves a safe and healthy relationship, no matter who they are or who they love.  Be Project, an initiative of The Family Place, will feature its Let Your Heart Rule Campaign throughout the community this month, supporting the National TDV Awareness Month Campaign from Love is Respect and Break the Cycle.

Be Project will be distributing heart-shaped stickers and buttons in high schools so that students can decorate and wear on their sleeves during the month to raise awareness. This includes Coppell HS, Creekview HS, Ranchview HS, R. L. Turner HS, Madison HS, and Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School.

In addition, high schools are raising the bar and creating their own plans.

  • Coppell High School Be More Group – Students plan to create a video about healthy relationships to show throughout the school and distribute table tents at lunch to raise awareness of TDV and get students talking about the issue.
  • Ranchview High School Be More Group - Students plan to create a music video where they will parody a current, popular song to educate and raise awareness of TDV.
  • Creekview Be More Group – Students will design video skits to raise awareness of TDV and show at school.
  • Seagoville High School – Students will compete in a poster contest.
