There is a tremendous need for what [Advot] is doing. You prove to the young adults in your program that words do have meaning and can make an enormous difference in how we view ourselves and how others view us. You are changing the world one person at a time, definitely a ripple effect.
In [this program] I have learned that first and foremost love shouldn’t hurt. I learned to love and respect myself because I can’t love no one if I don’t love myself.
The program never fails to empower our students as they mature into young adults and eventually tomorrow’s leaders, with newfound respect and understanding of the evils of domestic violence.
[This program] was a catalyst for positive change here at Camp Gonzales. The residents learned for the first time that safe and proper conduct is necessary in order to achieve healthy romantic relationships. We encourage potential funders to consider the cost-effective merits of the Advot Project, knowing that its workshops will help our teens learn an important set of ethics and rules to live by.
