Please join us for our next Becoming Your Own Heroine Workshop on July 13



Did you know that 1 in 3 teens in the U.S. experiences physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner within a given year? Statistics also tell us that over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year.

Becoming Your Own Heroine is a program created by Becky’s Fund to help educate young women on healthy relationships, dating violence, and encourage female empowerment and sisterhood. This free program helps empower young women to be the best versions of themselves.

Teens who experience dating violence and bullying often struggle with managing their mental health, resorting to coping through drinking, drug use, eating disorders, and destructive behavior like cutting. It is essential to provide a safe space for our youth to be able to talk about these sensitive topics and learn how to help one another through active listening, support, and knowing where to go for help.
