RESOURCES FOR TEENS

Women between the ages of 12-24 are at the highest risk for sexual violence. Appropriately, the majority of sexual violence prevention efforts focus on educating teens about healthy relationships and sexuality, as well as consent, oppression, and media literacy. Making resources available to assist teens who may have already experienced sexual violence is also necessary. Below are resources for local agencies that are or are planning to work with teens.
