Help of Door County is getting area youth involved with the FYRE program. FYRE, which stands for Forging Youth Relationships and Education, has teens meet weekly to encourage students to come forward with teen dating violence experiences. Youth Advocate Karla says the goal is to give young people a voice that is heard.
Sturgeon Bay High School Senior Ava Carmody says she has seen first-hand the impact of the FYRE program.
February is National Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. This is the first in a weekly series on the programs offered by Help of Door County in dealing with the issue of teen dating violence.
