Outreach Prevention and Education



Grace Smith House’s Prevention and Education Team have long standing and continuous relationships with the middle and high schools in Dutchess County, as offer a variety of trainings for students, teachers and administrators regarding bullying, cyber bullying and teen dating violence. 
Teen Dating Violence & Bullying Workshops: 
Grace Smith House’s interactive and engaging workshops are free. Our trained educators use the Mentors in Violence Prevention Model (MVP), an interactive discussion which uses real life scenarios that teach bystander intervention skills from a social justice perspective. These MVP Workshops are held during assemblies, phys-ed/ health class, orientation, clubs, faculty meetings, in-service days, etc. All workshops are available to middle school and high school students, parents, direct service providers, school staff and administrators, and can be facilitated in 30-60 minutes.
