Ask Ava

Ask Ava

When 1 out of 3 teens experience dating abuse before high school graduation, it’s all of our responsibility to work together to end abuse once and for all. The Ask Ava series, developed by teens in our SPEAK Teen Leadership Camps, is designed to connect with and educate teens about teen dating abuse and healthy relationships. We’ll be answering each week’s question with a deeper look here on our podcast. Listen alone, with a family member or trusted adult, or friend to get answers, gain more information about this important topic and learn about resources for teens and those that care about them.
