The IPV Prevention Council was formed in 2011 as a voluntary association of domestic violence coalitions working in partnership with allied national organizations. The Council is committed to enhancing the capacity of state/territory domestic violence coalitions and community-based domestic violence programs to advance a comprehensive national prevention agenda and broaden support for its full implementation at the national, state, territory and local levels.
PreventIPV.com is a result of the work of the Council and the Violence Free Coalition was very honored when they asked us to be apart of their video series.
In this video interview, the Violence Free Coalition (VFC) of Warren County, Ohio describes their unique partnership with local substance abuse prevention practitioners and high school students in an effort to support the development of a Teen Alliance Council working to address multiple social and public health issues facing teens. Through the Teen Alliance Council and related programming, local high school students are given the structure, tools, and resources needed to lead prevention efforts within their communities and to inspire their generation to put an end to violence and substance abuse in all forms.
