HART trains youths between the ages of 12 to 18 on prevention and how to spot the signs of dating abuse. Once their training is complete they will be a certified Teen Life Coach and they will be able to provide awareness and support to other teens. 

The ultimate goal is to stop dating violence before it starts. Strategies that promote healthy and respectful relationships are vital. During the preteen and teen years, young people are learning about relationships with potential dating partners. This is an ideal time to promote healthy relationships and prevent patterns of dating violence.

Society is often blind to the fact that teens do experience abusive relationships. Therefore, HART’s mission is to focus on teen dating violence. We aim to decrease the number of violent relationships by educating our teens and their families. Hopefully by educating our teens and their families we can stop teen and domestic abuse before it occurs. In a single year, there are nearly 1.5 million teens nationwide who experience physical abuse from a dating partner. 1 in 3 adolescents in the US is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a dating partner. 1 in 10 teens has been purposefully been slapped or physically hurt by a boyfriend or girlfriend.
