Mission Statement

OUR MISSION: To prevent teen dating abuse BEFORE it starts. \\\\\\\\\\\\\\ OUR VISION: Next generations growing a culture of healthy, non-violent relationships. \\\\\\\\\\ MARKET 1 in 3 teens report experiencing dating abuse.

Description

We meet our mission through our 3-step bloom365 program in schools:

Bloom365 launched in 2012 with funding from the Verizon Foundation and Social Venture Partners-AZ. With four years of positive pilot results, we are ready to test the efficacy of teens delivering the 3-Step prevention program to their peers.

STEP 1: LEARN

We deliver 7 consecutive interactive prevention doses, lasting 50-minutes each, in health education classes:

1: Define It: Dating/Dating Abuse

2: Red Flags: Breaking Up & Helping A Friend

3: Unhealthy Gender/Social Norms

4: Social Acceptance & Media

5: Setting Boundaries

6: Conflict Resolution

7: Bystander Intervention/Social Change

STEP 2: SUPPORT

We equip teens with the skills to address confidentiality, mandatory reporting and how/where to refer a friend for help. In collaboration with universities, we will build a resource and referral network of advanced interns to provide ongoing support to teens who disclose abuse, including LGBTQ youth victims and teen perpetrators.

Step 3: TRANSFORM

Teens who are motivated to transform the social norms that perpetuate dating abuse work together to promote healthy relationships as peer educators and advocates through Generation bloom365.

I am a domestic violence victim court advocate. One of my clients raved about your organization.
