Issues Facing Our Younger Generation.
Not so long ago the only worries a young person had was what to wear for the first day of school, what college they were going to apply to after graduation and what their plans were for summer break. Now youth and young adults have so much on their mind with the new age of technology and everything that can and will appear on their cell phones. Let’s take a look at some of the statistics our youth and young adults are facing in 2019.
Dating violence 1 in 10 high school students state that they have been physically pushed, pulled or hit by their boyfriend/girlfriend.
Female college-aged students (18-24) are 20% less likely than non-students of the same age to be a victim of rape or sexual assault.1
Male college-aged students (18-24) are 78% more likely than non-students of the same age to be a victim of rape or sexual assault.1 (source:rainn)
Have you been affected by dating violence, sexual assault or bullying?
Why Is This So Important To Us?
Great question, compassion. Everyday we hear of the sadness in our country about a young person that has been bullied to the point of suicide, a young girl being lured into someones dorm room only to be sexual assaulted, maybe even a story about young adults dating when all of a sudden it becomes violent. Our goal is to bring about awareness and become proactive.
