The New Milford Youth Agency will present a teen dating violence awareness and prevention program, "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not: Jessica's Story," March 1.
The program, open to area teens, will run from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at The Maxx at 94 Railroad St.
One in five teens report physical or emotional abuse by a dating partner and nearly 25 percent of 14- to 17-year-olds surveyed know at least one student who experienced dating violence.
The program is presented by Jessica and a Women's Center community educator.
Youth Agency bus transportation will be available from the high school to The Maxx.
