Every February, young people, their loved ones, and other caring adults join together across the country for a national effort to raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence. Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM) is a month-long effort that focuses on advocacy and education to stop dating abuse before it starts.


“We are so excited for the 2nd Annual Cookies & Consent bake sale fundraiser in honor of TDVAM! The theme for 2024 is 'Love Like That.' This is a call to action not only for young people, but for adults as well, to exemplify and amplify what healthy love looks and feel like.” said Erin Ostling Burkholder, director of outreach & prevention.


Dating violence is unfortunately, very common especially among teens and young adults. One in three teens in the US will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from someone they’re in a relationship with before they become adults, and nearly half (43%) of college women report experiencing violent or abusive dating behaviors.


The prevention program at Crime Victim Services began in 2012 and provides culturally appropriate educational curriculum to youth and adults with the express purpose of preventing relationship violence and cultivating a culture where consent and respect for one another is a central tenet. With over 25 years of combined professional education experience, prevention educators deliver an evidence-based curriculum which meets the core educational requirements of the Ohio Department of Education and Erin's Law.
