Prevention Goals

At the School Level:

  • Improve the school climate by promoting healthy, nonviolent relationships and decreasing tolerance for bullying, harassment and other behaviors/attitudes conducive to violence.

  • Develop and support school policies that address negative statements and behaviors, promote gender equality, and assess school events to determine whether they inadvertently contribute to negative gender stereotyping or include images that condone violence.

  • Train staff to develop skills to promote respectful behaviors and address disrespectful behaviors.

At the Community Level:

  • Promote positive messages about healthy relationships and the importance of mutual respect and nonviolence.

  • Collaborate with local community groups to promote healthy relationships and support parents and youth.
