"Tomorrow's casualty count, the next wave of #MeToo hashtags and the extent of our children's exposure to domestic violence all depend on what we do today." Judge Lynn Toler
OUR MISSION, VISION & PURPOSE
BLOOM365's mission is to prevent teen dating abuse BEFORE it starts. Our vision is safe and healthy relationships for all. We address the root causes of abuse and violence early and with an entire generation by partnering with K-12 schools and community based youth organizations to give young people the knowledge, skills and confidence to prevent abusive behaviors.
WHAT WE DO
We partner with schools and youth organizations and deliver our seven-dose Bloom It Up curriculum to educate teens on the signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships. We help them spot the "red flags" of an abusive or controlling friend or partner, build their communication and conflict resolution skills and encourage them to challenge social norms that allow such behaviors to thrive.
What we do is not only important because of the seeds we plant for healthy relationships in the future; we provide direct advocacy services in real time for teens who are currently experiencing or witnessing abuse and intervene when teens disclose being controlling or violent.
Through peer to peer mobilization, we then activate young people to create an environment in which empathy, respect, kindness, consent, equality and peace are socially accepted norms. We leave with a teen-led Peer Advocate Crew in place to reinforce the new ideas we foster.
Our BLOOM IT UP solution is working. Our methodology has been studied and determined promising for widespread prevention. BLOOM365 goes beyond raising awareness- we change and save lives.
When you invest in BLOOM365, you are supporting the only teen-driven organization with a root cause prevention focus and a 6+ year track record of implementing comprehensive and teen-relevant prevention education, advocacy and activism in schools and youth organizations, reaching over 10,000 teens annually.
