What is TDVAM?
TDVAM is a month-long campaign dedicated to raising awareness about teen dating abuse. Every February, young people and their loved ones join together across the country for a national effort to raise awareness about the issue of teen dating violence through Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month (TDVAM). Congress declared the month of February to be National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month in 2010. This annual, month-long push focuses on advocacy and education to stop dating abuse before it starts.
2021 Theme “Know Your Worth”
Why we chose this theme this year’s theme Know Your Worth is all about learning about healthy relationships and self-empowerment, and was chosen by college students from across the country. You are worth respect and deserving of a healthy, loving relationship. Our idea with this theme is to empower our audience to
learn more about healthy relationships, and to know what they are worth and what they deserve. It is a very powerful, personal statement that guides actions,
behaviors, and communication in relationships to be healthy and free from violence. Everyone is deserving of a healthy relationship!
