Day One’s preventive program uses role-plays and interactive tools to educate youth and train adults to respond to dating violence and domestic sex trafficking.
Presentations in schools, youth programs, and foster care facilities teach teens how to examine controlling behavior and gender dynamics that could lead to relationship abuse. We also train young people about exercising their rights and responsibilities under the law.
Day One builds skills among adults—such as faculty, parents, law enforcement, child protective workers, and social service providers—to identify the risk factors for dating abuse and domestic sex trafficking of youth, deliver tips on safety planning, learn effective interviewing techniques, make appropriate referrals, and offer supportive guidance to youth.
Day One has educated more than 90,000 people since 2003.
