Statistics were coming out of the United States that showed that 1 out of 4 young girls would experience dating violence before they graduated from high school. In Love & In Danger reaches up to 35,000 students each year through two annual youth directed conferences, community outreach, and follow up projects and activities in local schools.
Using a train-the-trainer format, teams of youth from each school come together for a dynamic and interactive day of learning about dating violence and woman abuse.
In spite of the fact that nowadays the figures about the incidence of violence against women by spouses or sentimental partners, or in the frame of other kind of affective relationships, are gradually gaining publicity with regard to previous times, it is equally true that there is still a lot of hidden reality to know.
