Corridors of Romantic Violence: A Program to Create Awareness and Prevent Violence among Adolescents

PDQ 4 socio-community agents collaborated with Des Sources high school and the West Island Women's Center to participate in the Corridors of Romantic Violence program during the month of February.

This program is aimed at fourth and fifth secondary school students to create awareness and reduce various forms of violence. During the program, the students were immersed in a multimedia environment that helped them understand the warning signs of romantic violence. At the end of the program, the socio-community agents were available to answer questions and talk to the students about laws that protect and support them in case of violence. 655 students, along with teachers and school workers, participated in the program and learned about the evolution of relationships and domestic violence. By completing the course, the students were equipped with tools to recognize and prevent violence and seek help from various support groups.

To raise awareness among a larger audience, Sources secondary school opened its doors in the evening for the citizens of Dollard-des-Ormeaux to experience the program and meet the dedicated workers. It is important for young people to recognize different types of violence and strive for respectful and balanced relationships.
