Teen Dating Violence Education

Bookmark This


Kaity's Way promotes healthy relationships with integrity, raising awareness about bullying in youth dating via complementary education. Kaity’s Way was created in memory of Kaitlyn Marie Sudberry, a vivacious high school senior whose life was cut short by her ex-boyfriend as a result of a tragically dysfunctional and abusive relationship. We envision a world without teen dating violence.

Help bring awareness to the issue of teen dating violence and promote healthy relationships via activities aimed at youth and adults. Kaity's way provides education and resource materials to help one avoid or identify an abusive relationship, including a very informative website providing invaluable information to the community such as, warning signs (red flags) of a violent relationship, suggestions for creating a safety plan, how to get and/or give help and the importance of having and maintaining a healthy relationship on various levels.

As an intern with Kaity's you may:

assist with workshops/presentations (in which you may have the opportunity to be a presenter)
set up and man event booths and resource tables
provide phone outreach
share Kaity’s story with various organizations, schools, and the general public
We have some set locations in Northwest and Central Phoenix, yet we provide these services throughout the valley and state. The days of the weeks and times vary as well, and interns will be able to choose a specific section of town they would like to cover.

The targeted audience is teenagers, but all populations are involved, i.e. parents, families, schools, etc. Basically anyone that has or will have a teenager in their life. This could be their child, niece/nephew, cousin, sibling, neighbor, student, coworker, patient.

It is important that once a teenager discloses or discusses their relationship with a trusted adult or friend that they are able to determine if the relationship is healthy or not. It is at that critical point that they have the opportunity to help the teenager recognize the unhealthy relationship, consider a safety plan to end the relationship and understand their rights under the law.

The statistics tell us there is an extreme need to bring awareness to the prevalence of Teen Dating Violence.

2013 Study recently released by the American Psychological Association Found…

41% of Females and 37% Males reported experience with adolescent dating violence (ADV).
35% of Females and 29% Males report being a perpetrator
29% of Females and 24% Males report being both a victim and perpetrator.
81% of adults admit they had no idea that teen dating violence was an issue.

Beyond the statistics there is the normalization of the behavior due to upbringing, outside influences and the lack of understanding of what it takes to have a healthy relationship.
