WANT TO HELP PREVENT TEEN DATING ABUSE IN YOUR COMMUNITY & BEYOND?
Are you interested in bringing BLOOM365's research-based and tested 3-step BLOOM IT UP teen-driven movement to your community?
Please take a few minutes to fill out this form and let us know how you would like to mobilize a BLOOM365 community of teens, advocates, activists and allies to prevent teen dating abuse before it starts!
HERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO JOIN OUR COMMUNITY OF BLOOMERS!
PEER EDUCATOR: Become trained to deliver the 7-Dose BLOOM IT UP curriculum to middle school and high school peers in your school or youth organizations. For teens not involved in a school BLOOM CREW club, you will need to identify a local mentor and sponsor organization, such as your local City Council, Police Department Victim Advocacy unity, domestic/sexual violence coalition or program. We can help with this!
PEER ADVOCATE: Become trained to provide peer to peer support to teens who have experienced dating abuse or gender based violence. This includes volunteering on the BLOOM365 chat line/hotline, facilitating weekly peer-led support groups, responding to FAQS via the teen-led Bloom It Up Podcast and providing information and referrals to teens who reach out for help.
NATIONAL TEEN ADVISORY BOARD: The national teen advisory board meets once a month to provide focus group advice, create peer to peer social media communications and BLOOM365 challenges, help to influence public policies on teen dating abuse prevention and more. We meet via Google Hangouts and at our Blooming Point for Teens in Phoenix, AZ.
FOR AFFILIATE PARTNERS
AFFILIATE CHAPTER: Want to launch a BLOOM365 Affiliate Chapter in your community, region or state? We are currently partnering with "early adopter" chapter leaders to test and implement our research based, evidence informed, promising practice 3-Step Bloom It Up model in local communities beyond Maricopa County Arizona.
The first step in becoming an affiliate chapter is to complete our 3-Day implementation partner and facilitator training designed for professionals and paraprofessionals from advocacy organizations, law enforcement, military installations, schools and other partner organizations on how to scale the high-impact, teen-driven BLOOM365 movement in your local school communities.
Trainings are held at our Blooming Point Center in Phoenix Arizona four times a year. For partner affiliates wanting to train 6 or more, we can bring the training to your location.

EDUCATION | ADVOCACY | ACTIVISM:
Want to bring our 3-Step Bloom it Up to your middle school or high school students? If you are in Maricopa County, Arizona, our trained team of advocates will work with your designated staff to implement and deliver our core standards aligned 7-dose health education curriculum, provide on going drop-in advocacy services to teens who have experienced abuse or violence and mentor, train and activate students as Peer Educators and Peer Advocates to promote healthy relationships and uproot abuse.
If your school is located outside of Maricopa County, Arizona we can either train your staff to implement or partner with a local advocacy organization to bring Bloom It Up to your students.
PARENT PEER EDUCATOR: Are you a parent/guardian with a deep passion for preventing dating abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault among future generations? Do you enjoy public speaking and facilitating meaningful conversations for social change? If so, this opportunity is for you! We will train you to deliver our 2.5 hour Bloom It Up workshop for parents/guardians on the root causes of this social disease and new skills to help your children and teens build and model healthy relationships!
We have several internship and volunteer opportunities available. Please see examples listed on the response form below!
