The Don’t Block the Truth series of free community events will continue next week on Wednesday, March 1st from 6:00-8:00 PM at the Troy Boys and Girls Club! All members of the community are invited to attend.
The U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that among high school students who are dating, 21% of females and 10% of males report that they have experienced physical or sexual violence in their relationship.
At The Block Center, we believe teen dating violence is a serious problem our community can work together to stop. We need to raise awareness about the issue and help our young people understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships early on, so that they can avoid these problems before they start.
We are proud to partner with Unity House, Samaritan Hospital, Troy High School WAVE, CEO YouthBuild, and the Troy Boys and Girls club to present the event, which will be appropriate for all ages, genders, and sexual orientations. Everyone is welcome!
