Education & Training
The Education & Training program builds the community’s capacity to prevent violence by replacing attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors that perpetuate violence with those that promote safety, justice, and equality for all. It works to strengthen community knowledge and skills, educate providers, foster coalitions and networks, and change practices and policies that promote violence.
The cornerstone of AWP’s Education & Training program is the articulation, exploration, and examination of the dynamics of domestic abuse and violence and its impact on individuals, families, and the community. AWP offers age and audience appropriate content, language, and material, and any presentation can be tailored to meet specific needs and requests.
Programs presented at elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Bucks County address domestic abuse and violence awareness and prevention in an effort to stop domestic violence before it starts. Peace Works provides elementary school children with information and skills for recognizing and building healthy relationships. Dating Works, for middle and high school students, provides similar information focused on applying these healthy relationship skills to pre-teen and teenage relationships. Dating Works also raises awareness about resources and options available to students experiencing abuse or violence in their relationships.
The Education & Training program also offers community-based programs that provide ongoing domestic violence awareness and prevention education while engaging more of the community in efforts to end domestic violence as well as trainings for volunteers, that seek to inform and engage individuals in AWP’s mission and the ongoing work to eradicate the issue.
