Teen Dating 101: Great American Teach-In
November 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
Our Violence Prevention Advocate, Melissa Dohme Hill, heads up Hands Across the Bay’s Domestic Violence Division. She is a survivor of a brutal stabbing in 2012, where she was stabbed 32 times after leaving her abusive and jealous high school ex-boyfriend. Statistics show that 1 in 3 teens will experience some form of abuse while in high school.
We are committed to providing high schools in the Tampa Bay area with anti-violence presentations. Silence is part of what allows the epidemic of domestic violence to continue destroying people’s lives. We speak throughout the community to educate, inspire, and raise awareness. Presenting the facts about teen dating and domestic violence along with sharing personal experiences lies at the core of our presentations. We are proud to have spoken at Countryside High School for the past 8 years.
