Relationships Are Elementary

The Center developed the Relationships Are Elementary program in partnership with the Bank Street College of Education. The first of its kind, it teaches young children how to prevent relationship abuse.

The curriculum for this program is designed to engage children in a two-way conversation about how people relate to one another in relationships. Students learn about the elements of inequality, power and control that are at the core of abusive relationships and explore how relationship dynamics relate to their own life experiences. The program helps children understand the relationships they have in the present and encourages them to build healthy ones in the future.

Kidz Klub

Kidz Klub is our ongoing support group that is open to all children in the community who come from violent homes. The groups run concurrently with our community-based support groups for women so that moms can get the help and support they need at the same time.
