Avon Romania Empowers Teens to Make Positive Relationship Choices
High school can be tough, and teenage relationships can be confusing, especially with the added pressure of social media. Avon Romania is raising awareness about healthy and unhealthy relationships, by educating teens about potential abuse and violence disguised as young love.
‘In a Relationship’ is a multi-media campaign that spans online education, workshops and a relationship ‘test’, and has already gained positive feedback from Romanian teenagers. So far there have been over 39,000 visits to the relationship test page. 80% of the visits were from girls, and over 17% from boys.
The workshops, run at several festivals in Romania, explore the reasons people could become violent, and highlight the subtler forms of emotional abuse, and their effects. The result is empowered teenagers, who know more about healthy relationships, the risks they face, and how to get help if they need it.
