Outreach and Engagement

Family and Children’s Services offers outreach and engagement services, which aim to educate adolescents on healthy relationships and dating violence in school and community-based settings. The curriculum is written to encourage boundary-setting and communication, equipping adolescents to identify potential red flags, risk factors, and thorough safety planning. There are varying, age-appropriate levels to the program that are designed to reinforce current curriculum being taught in Maryland Public Schools. Staff work alongside health teachers and program administrators to target areas of concern for the adolescents of the communities served, ensuring the implementation of an engaging and effective program.
