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.
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.
