< Back to Youth Program

We have heard time and time again from young people that they just want the adults in their lives to have a genuine interest in their relationships. There are many ways to show your interest, but the way that seems to be sought after the most by young people is simply asking open-ended, judgement free questions about their lives and the people in them. Below you will find resources that will help you talk to the young person in your life.

If you have questions along the way, please do not hesitate to email Corinne Herdon, Youth Program Manager and Jala Powell, Youth Program Coordinator.

Get Involved with Youth Network

Do you have a young activist in your life? Do you know a teen in your life that wants to make a difference? We have a program that will hopefully fit the amazing young person in your life.

Youth Network is a space for students and young people to learn about TDV and become advocates in their schools. Through the Youth Network, we will engage and empower students to be leaders in their communities, challenge societal norms, and lead the way for social change in their generation.

Students in YN will have the opportunity to be involved in school and community improvement through service projects, have a chance to demonstrate a strong commitment to service, and inspire other students and community members to take action. Members must complete an application before joining.

Note: We are only currently offering Youth Network at Shortridge and Crispus Attucks High Schools. We are working hard to offer it at other high schools in the near future! 

Email Corinne Herdon and Jala Powell to learn more or express future interest.

If your school, organization, church group, or community group would like additional training on how to recognize and respond to teen dating abuse and/or how to talk to young people about healthy dating relationships, please contact our Youth Team above.


Title IX


The law requires institutions to respond to intimate partner violence, sexual violence or stalking that:

  • takes place on campus;
  • is connected to school programs; or
  • is perpetuated by anyone affiliated with the school

Off-campus misconduct matters as much as misconduct that occurs on campus, whether it takes place down the street, online, or overseas.

Applies to Students, Faculty, Staff, Subcontractors, Vendors, Guests, and Visitors.
