Project HART

Healthy Alternatives for Relationships among Teens

Project HART is a relationship violence prevention program offered at St. Louis-area schools, community centers and other places teens gather. Made up of a series of workshops, Project HART gives teens and pre-teens the knowledge and skills to develop healthy relationships free of abuse and violence.

The goals of Project HART are to help teens recognize sexually, physically and emotionally abusive relationships; develop skills to reduce their risk of being victimized; identify sources of help if they are in an abusive relationship and learn how to be proactive in helping others. We hope everyone who experiences the entire Project HART curriculum walks away with the tools to establish and sustain healthy relationships for a lifetime.

Topics include:

  • Healthy Relationships
  • Unhealthy Relationships and Teen Dating Violence
  • Gender Roles and Dating
  • Technology and Relationships
  • Challenging and Responding to Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual Assault Awareness
  • Survivor Support
  • Bystander Intervention
  • LGBTQ Myth Busting
  • Gender Identity and Trans Youth

Project HART presentations and workshops are free of charge. For more information or to schedule Project HART for your school or organization, contact Zenique Gardner-Perry at 314.646.7500 x130.
