Description

Join The Advocates in a social change photo campaign for National Teen Dating Violence and Awareness Month. Choose this activity and you will meet with a local photographer, get your picture taken holding a sign about teen dating violence (maybe one that promotes change, sends a message of hope or states a statistic, we will help get your ideas rolling.), and (with each individuals permission) your picture will be displayed in various venues in the valley.

Be a central part of The Advocates teen intern group, the ETC’s, community event held in February. This project must be completed by January 15, 2015
