Empowering Youth by Providing Help and Hope
The Margaret’s Place Room
The Margaret’s Place program model provides integrated and comprehensive healing services in schools through designated “safe rooms” to youth who are impacted by violence and trauma.
A Violence Prevention Curriculum
Our Violence Prevention Curriculum entitled, Youth Empowered to Speak (YES), is taught over five weeks in 7th and 9th grade classrooms, and is designed to address specific knowledge objectives related to violence prevention and to empower young people to play a role in ending the cycle of violence.
School-Wide Awareness Campaigns
School-Wide Awareness Campaign mobilizes the entire school community around themes of respect and violence prevention.
Peer Leaders are youth ambassadors for Margaret’s Place and are trained in public speaking, conflict mediation, and violence and abuse and play an active role in educating their peers.
Staff Training provides teachers, administrators, and support personnel with an overview of domestic violence, how it impacts youth, and what to do if family violence is suspected.
