Stories of Impact

Students from local schools share what our work has meant to them

Warren County Juvenile Detention Center

It really made me not to just think about my relationships, but about my life. It made me want better for my life.

West Carrollton HS

This program was very helpful! The part how sex can affect you emotionally and physically definitely explains why it made leaving my ex so much harder.

Mason High School

It was really good to learn about what makes a relationship healthy and what are warning signs of unhealthy relationships. Being able to tell the difference between what you should do and what your emotions want you to do if something doesn’t feel right. Also understanding the many different signs of abuse, it can be more than just physical and it’s important to know red flags.

Mason High School

I learned a lot about how to have self control and maintain healthy relationships. I know how to calm myself down more when in arguments and to communicate better. I also learned that not skipping steps in relationships can make them last longer. With the issues with covid right now it was a bit more difficult on the google meet but I was still able to gain a lot of information.

Northmont HS

I really liked this program because it made me think deeper into relationships than before. I think this class should be taught to everyone at some point and required.

East Dayton Christian School

Personally, I remember having you back in my freshman year. During this time I was in an extremely unhealthy relationship. He used all of the grooming tactics. After this program those years ago I got out of my relationship. This program saved and changed my life dramatically. Thank you!

Mason High School

I learned a lot during this program. One of the biggest things that I didn’t know before were the many different types of grooming tactics that people use and how it can be linked to future abuse. Knowing this now I feel will help me a lot in my future.

Stivers HS

I liked this program because it taught me things that I needed guidance in. I hope to be able to take most of the things we talked about into consideration for the rest of my life and teach others that need help as much as I did.

Mason High School

I liked the presentations and I feel like they were educating on important topics. I feel like it has educated me enough to make different decisions and probably smarter, more thought out ones, than I would have before this program.

Mason High School

I thought this program was helpful and I took away some information especially about abusive or unhealthy relationships and grooming tactics. Even though a lot of it seems obvious, there are some things I never would have thought of or realized. I think I will be more careful about relationships in the future now because of this. 

Springboro High School

I found this presentation very interesting and beneficial for students at our age. It helped me realize a lot about myself and the relationships that I have with other people.

Mason High School

This presentation was really good! I thought everything we learned about relationships was important especially since many of us are about to enter adulthood soon. Learning about grooming, what makes a healthy relationship and commitment helped make me feel more confident in the people I allow in my life and who I plan to meet in college.

Mason High School

I learned a lot about each step to take in the dating progress and what you have to do in each stay to keep a healthy relationship. I also thought the session about grooming was really interesting, I didn’t know a lot about that topic beforehand and I do now and it’s all good information to know.
