The Faythe Project is an arts for social change initiative that uses literary, performing, visual and media arts to educate young people about establishing and maintaining healthy early dating relationships and equipping them with the skills to identify and exit unhealthy ones.
The Faythe Project was founded specifically to fill the demand for school appropriate educational materials that equip and empower young people to identify unhealthy dating relationships and establish healthy ones. We exist to support prevention organizations’ outreach efforts with materials that go beyond the assembly and special presentations that provide real life first hand stories. These are a vital aspect of Dating Violence Prevention but cannot change the tide alone. Unfortunately, assemblies and special presentations are too soon forgotten. Our materials explore the topic of dating violence as part of everyday learning—the play for Drama class, the short story for English class, the lesson on statistics for Math. Our materials keep the dialogue going after the prevention organization as introduced the topic.
