February is national Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. FYSB’s Family Violence Prevention and Services Program is proud to support the many events hosted by our grantees and partners this year by presenting public awareness campaigns, webinars, social media events, and radio shows that highlight healthy relationships.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to help recognize, prevent, and respond to a serious health crisis affecting a tremendous number of women — and men — across the country.
As part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), the Family Violence Prevention and Services Program joins with its grantees and federal partners to offer a wide range of domestic violence awareness month educational events and activities. We invite you to join us in building awareness and taking action around ending domestic violence.
We spoke to Linda Byrd-Johnson, Senior Director of the Student Service area within the Office of Postsecondary Education at ED, and Debbie Powell, Deputy Associate Commissioner of FYSB, to discuss why collaboration between HHS and ED is so important and what it could potentially mean for diverse populations of disconnected youth.
