Positive Role Models and Leadership

Key skills such as respect and communication are necessary in building a healthy relationship. Children need to have positive role models in their life that demonstrate how to treat their partners. Youth need the capacity to engage in nonviolent, respectful relationships and to become peer leaders. Community coalitions and partnerships can be valuable in promoting positive images about relationship and educating youth about sexual violence.
