To educate adolescents on establishing healthy relationships and address the issue of teen dating violence, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey’s University Hospital School-Based Youth Services Program  teaches Dating 101: Keep It Safe within the Essex County Vocational School District.  Dating 101: Keep It Safe integrates the “Safe Dates” curriculum into all ninth grade health education classes at four schools in Essex County: Newark Tech, North Thirteenth Street Center (both located in Newark), Bloomfield Tech, and West Caldwell Center.  The program is part of a district-wide character education initiative in which peer leaders model appropriate attitudes and behaviors for underclassmen.
