The Relationships Curriculum
What is the project?
From 2019-2024 PPO is working on developing a skills-based curriculum which aims to prevent teen dating violence by supporting grade 9 students in building satisfying relationships. In designing this curriculum, our team has aimed to use a trauma informed and anti-oppressive lens which has been informed by extensive consultations with youth in Ontario.
As part of this endeavor, we launched a community-based research project done in collaborration with researchers from York University. Through this partnership we are evaluating the effectiveness of our curriculum, and will work with Ontario teachers to implement this evidence based curriculum in their classrooms. The entire project has been funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).
