Peace and Paint

Bushwick Houses 

ENDGBV’s Academy held a Healthy Relationships workshop in Bushwick with teens from Bushwick Houses. Youth who participated in the workshop had the opportunity to learn and paint their responses to different topics. The workshop engaged participants on an important topic and allowed them to meaningfully express themselves and their experiences with healthy relationships through art.

The NYC Healthy Relationship Training Academy (“the Academy”) was established to provide educational and skills-building training for adolescents, parents, and organizations that provide services to young people. The Academy facilitates interactive workshops on dating violence and healthy relationships, providing young people and parents with an opportunity to learn from trained peer educators. Workshops are also available for staff working directly with young people.
