is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner, a figure that far exceeds rates of other types of youth violence.
Recognizing that Prom Season presents a timely opportunity to remind young people about the characteristics of healthy respectful relationships and how to avoid unhealthy ones, KBEP, through the Consent Awareness Pledge (formally the Prom Promise Campaign) encourages students topledge to promote respectful dating relationships.
Students who take the pledge are given a booklet with information on resources and coupons for discounts at area salons, florists and limo services.
We are joining the national conversation this month to educate and raise awareness by participating in Respect Week 2018.
KBEP’s 8th grade curriculum is presented to classrooms of no more than 30 students.
The Katie Brown Educational Program (KBEP) was founded in 2001 in response to the brutal murder of Katherine “Katie” Brown of Barrington, Rhode Island.
We at KBEP feel that at this stage, adolescents should be familiarized with the skills and tools necessary in order to establish a healthy dating relationship.
