Teen dating violence is an epidemic, and a silent one at that: though one in three American teens will experience dating abuse, nearly two-thirds will never report it. Break the Cycle works to prevent violence among youth ages 12 to 24 – and empower teens to diagnose, escape, and prevent unhealthy relationships. Staff attorneys provide free legal services to youth experiencing dating violence; they also train local professionals – police officers, nurses, university officials – to better serve and protect young survivors. Meanwhile, an innovative online and school-based curriculum helps youth strengthen their prevention skills and educate their communities. With help from Break the Cycle, 36,000 young people have escaped abusive relationships. As one young woman explained: “Leaving him was not enough. I needed Break the Cycle’s help to truly be safe.” Your help is welcome too.
