We are dedicated to helping middle and high schools and youth organizations reduce gender and relationship violence by promoting healthy relationship behaviors to ultimately create a culture of strong respect among adolescents. We utilize prevention programs, including curricular and co-curricular activities, to raise awareness of the underlying causes by highlighting the ‘red flags’ of dating relationships.

“Teen dating violence is a preventable public health problem which requires a comprehensive strategy to stop before it starts.”

Programming Options

We will work with your school to individualize a teen gender violence prevention plan that will best meet your needs. Your plan can include multiple program offerings or can simply start with one pilot activity. Ideally, a comprehensive and coordinated approach is best to build a culture of respectful relationship behaviors.

Our Work

Safe Dates Classroom Curriculum

ldh-safe-dates-249x300We recommend and utilize the comprehensive evidence-based teen dating violence program Safe Dates. This is a ten-session dating abuse curriculum designed for grades 6 to 12 and is best used in a classroom or student group setting. This curriculum is an excellent addition to a Family Studies Class that addresses 13 benchmarks and 29 competencies in the FCS standards. The curriculum is highly engaging and interactive and also includes a skit about dating abuse, a poster contest, parent materials, and an evaluation questionnaire.  Safe Dates materials include an instructor’s manual and CD-ROM. The program can alternatively be implemented in just six or even four sessions. More information on the Safe Dates curriculum can be found on the publisher’s website.

This $245 curriculum is available FREE through the generous support of Jana’s Campaign private donors and corporate sponsors. Just sign a Memorandum of Understanding to teach the curriculum and attend a teacher training to become a certified implementer.

    Awareness has definitely been impacted. There are students who are wanting to keep the “movement” going. I was approached by our Outloud sponsor (a group that is dedicated to positive choices) wanting to continue with monthly awareness activities and raising funds for area domestic violence centers.

    Hopefully first and foremost the guys will take Curt’s message to heart and own their behavior and how they think, talk about, and treat women. I think if this happens the rest will follow suit.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I appreciate your willingness to come in for my two classes this week. What a wonderful learning experience for all of us! I spoke with many students today about what we can do to keep Jana’s Campaign going strong. We are all brainstorming. Thank you once again; you are such an inspiration.

    I think this started a conversation about what unhealthy relationships look like. I have already received feedback from teachers and students about things they learned and we are seeing students hold each other accountable for their behaviors.

    I wanted to take a moment to thank you for taking the time to talk to the Life Management class at Hays High a few days ago.  My daughter Emily is in the class and told us that you had been there.  She shared with us what you spoke about and I could tell that she had been thinking a lot about it.  It prompted us to have a really good family discussion.  Thanks so much for the work you do.

Our service project mini-grants allow students to put knowledge into action as they integrate issues of gender-based violence into teen dating violence service projects. These projects let students realize they have the power to make a difference, and their projects can begin to create real change in their schools and communities.

The Counselor Project will provide high school counselors with education, training, and easily-implementable curriculum to more effectively prevent and respond to teen gender and relationship violence. This program will bring together a team of experts including nationally-known practitioners in the fields of gender-based violence and sexual assault, high school counselors, and instructors of counseling in higher education. This project will create a toolkit for counselors which will include information on student advocacy, school policy, Title IX compliance, prevention strategies, identification of red flags, response approaches, healthy relationship models, coordinated response team information, and more. Secondary school counselors consistently indicate that their schools do not have sufficient curriculum to address the issue, indicating the need for more training on red flags, mandatory reporting, as well as ways to directly help students. Jana’s Campaign is dedicated to playing a significant role in addressing this issue.

cbim-logo250x179Jana’s Campaign is happy to serve as a resource, link and a collaborative supporter by bringing a nationally recognized program Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) to high schools in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. This program trains athletic coaches to use their influence to help high school male student athletes to build healthy relationships and prevent gender violence. Over the course of an athletic season, CBIM coaches lead their players through brief weekly activities that address things such as personal responsibility, respectful behaviors, and relationship abuse. Jana’s Campaign staff and partners provide specialized training for athletic coaches, supplemental curriculum materials and ongoing support.
