Youth Council Toolkit: Materials to Help You Form Your Own Youth Council

General Material
Published Date
January, 2012

Emerging evidence shows that youth engagement is an effective strategy for the prevention of teen dating abuse. Young people are disproportionately impacted by dating and sexual violence. They are in the best position to inform adult preventionists about the abuse that is impacting their lives, and about effective strategies for preventing it.

The Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence compiled this toolkit to provide organizations interested in convening youth councils with sample forms, agendas, materials and advice about lessons  learned from their experience working with youth.
