Mission Statement

Boston Public Health Commission: o protect, preserve, and promote the health and well-being of all Boston residents, particularly those who are most vulnerable. Start Strong: is a program of the Division of Violence Prevention aimed at working with young people as the solution to ending teen dating violence.

Description

Start Strong is an innovative grass-roots effort focused on 11- to- 18-year-olds to prevent teen dating violence and abuse by actively promoting healthy relationships. We are working together with teens, parents, caregivers, educators, healthcare professionals, domestic violence advocates, and community leaders to build environments that support healthy relationships and ensure violence and abuse are never tolerated.

Start Strong values the voices of young people in the fight to end relationship abuse. As a result we hire and train high school peer leaders to help spread our healthy relationship messaging.
