"The kids had such a positive experience in the Healthy Relationships workshop yesterday. After talking to the children we found great areas of improvement. Most of the group were, after the completion of the session, able to define and give examples of healthy relationships; identify characteristics of unhealthy relationships/ partners; and identify abusive behaviors. Several of the children also stated that there was a lot of information that they would apply to their everyday interactions/ acquaintances as well as to their intimate relationships."

- Jacob E. Adeniran, Group Leader, The Fairmount Unit of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia
