To educate adolescents on establishing healthy relationships and address the issue of teen dating violence, NCADD of Middlesex County has incorporated Safe Dates into the fabric of PATHWAYS, Carteret’s School-based Youth Services Program.
Annually, Youth Development Specialists from PATHWAYS provide the entire nine-session Safe Dates curriculum to every eighth grader in the Middle School health classes. In year one, every ninth grader in the High School received the full curriculum. In years two and three, ninth graders receive four-lesson booster sessions. In addition, support groups and extracurricular clubs are facilitated in each school by PATHWAYS staff to provide peer education and support.
