Hosted by Youngjoo Ahn and Rachel Glass, today’s show on the impact of violence in teen relationships is the second in our series of Tough Talks. Our hosts audition two new reporters, Katelyn Eystad from New Jersey will report on ways to be a great volunteer with The Gift of Giving and Caie Kelley from California shares music and pop culture with What’s Poppin’?
Teenage Relationship Violence impacts millions of youth all over our world. With the three types of abuse (emotional, verbal, and sexual), one in five girls will experience teenage relationship violence. Research shows 80% of those girls remain in those abusive relationships, thus, awareness and community education are critically important. Boys are affected as well.
