Step 3: Decide how many activities you can realistically do at your school.

Step 4: Brainstorm activities. Use these ideas as a starting point or check out our links page for more resources.

Step 5: Assign a leader to each group and have fun planning your week.

What is your school doing?

High schools around Utah plan an entire week of activities on dating abuse prevention. Students create public service announcements (PSAs) that play during their morning television announcements, while others students have chosen to plan lunch activities where dating violence statistics and warning signs are addressed. Other schools have arranged to have guest speakers come present during school assemblies.
