Start Strong: Building Healthy Teen Relationships(Start Strong) is the largest initiative ever funded to target 11-to-14-year-olds and rally entire communities to promote healthy relationships as the way to prevent teen dating violence and abuse. 

We are bringing together a wide variety of partners in 11 communities across the country to tackle this issue and to empower young people to support safe and healthy relationships and ensure violence and abuse are never tolerated.  Frick Middle School is one of four Oakland middle schools participating in this program.   

The Start Strong model uses innovative strategies to:

  • Educate and engage youth in schools and out of school settings
  • Educate and engage teen influencers such as parents/caregivers, teachers and other mentors
  • Change policy and environmental factors
  • Implement effective communications/social marketing strategies
