One in three teens in the U.S. is a victim of physical, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. TeenSafe, an initiative of Jewish Family & Children’s Service’s Journey to Safety program, seeks to change that statistic by helping teens and the adults in their lives develop the language and tools they need to recognize abuse in a dating relationship and how to respond if they see, hear about or experience it.
