Education is the first step to the prevention
of domestic violence
Community education is available for individuals and groups interested in learning more about domestic violence and Kendall County Women's Shelter.
Education programs include:
Domestic Violence 101
Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Program
The Young Hearts is a teen dating violence prevention program led by Kendall County Women's Shelter. Together with our teen board of Boerne ISD students, we created a healthy relationship curriculum to present to area middle and high schools.
For over two years, the Young Hearts have had the opportunity to educate students about boundaries, the cycle of abuse, red and green flags, plus so much more than can teach students about what a healthy relationships should look like.
According to love is respect, 1 in 3 US teens will experience physical, sexual, or emotional abuse from a romantic partner before the age of eighteen. KCWS knows that education at a young age can prevent abuse and domestic violence later in life, so this program is key to our agency's mission.
