Making a Statement in Schools

Mead High School 2016

One of Statement’s long-term goals is to be an integral part of the school health curriculum and teach our dating abuse prevention program during school hours. We have made our first leap toward that goal this spring. In May, Mead High School invited Statement to teach a 2-day dating abuse class to more than 120 freshmen and sophomore students. Their feedback is clear: this curriculum is needed in schools.

“Thank you for spreading awareness. I didn’t know about all the different forms of abuse and how it presents itself. Your time with the class just reassures that we are valuable and priceless and we deserve to be who we are.”

“It was great. There was a lot of good information. What would make it even better would be if it was geared equally to guys as well as girls, but I know you’re working on it :)”

“I wish that I would’ve known this information a long time ago so I could’ve realized my boyfriend of that time was abusive and I was able to get out of that long before I did.”

We look forward to expanding our program to a full-unit segment within the school setting in 2017. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop about our programs!

  1. Congrats Jenny to you and your team on your grant awards. I know how hard you work and how many lives you touch. I was so grateful for your talk to the Mead students and the message you shared. Thanks again for coming to speak with our Health classes and helping them to understanding how important it is for them to stand up to abuse and believe in their core values. I believe your message will stick with them as they go forward into their future and they will be more aware of what to look for in a healthy relationship. Thanks again, Beth Gruenke, FACSE Teacher, Mead HIgh School

    • Beth,

      I so appreciate you reaching out and the kind words! We were truly shocked and humbled to receive the Agora award and the grant!

      Thank you so much for allowing us the wonderful opportunity to be a part of your health class and share our message! As you know it has been a long time goal for us! We are looking forward to coming back next year for an extended segment!

      Hope you have a blessed summer and let’s get in touch soon!

      Jen
