Information for Teens


Dating abuse happens when one partner exerts power and control over the other. Learn how to prevent, recognize and escape unhealthy relationships, online and off.

That’s Not Cool – Your cell phone, IM, Facebook, email, and other online accounts are all a part of you. When someone you are dating is disrespecting, controlling or pressuring you in those spaces, THAT’S NOT COOL!

Peers Building Justice (PBJ) is a radical youth collective that explores how dating and sexual violence are sustained by systems of power and control in our communities. PBJ aims to unearth community awareness of social justice issues, inspire arts-based events and projects to end oppression, build youth power, and create transformative discussions in classrooms, court rooms, and everywhere in between.

Each semester PBJ hosts seven after-school workshops and a curriculum to be presented in classrooms throughout Boulder County, during which time participants learn how to engage in healthy relationships, prevent dating and sexual violence, and become advocates for social justice.  Our curriculum is based off of Safe Dates and Expect Respect, two evidence-based violence prevention curricula and also fulfills many of the Boulder Valley School District Comprehensive Health Grade Level Expectations for high school students.

Come be a part of the movement for social justice! Collaborate with other student activists! Inspire your peers!

We are recruiting PBJ educators for the 2012/2013 school year NOW! Contact SPAN and be an agent for change and social justice!

PBJ is a collaboration of Safehouse Progressive Alliance (SPAN) and Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA).
