SanDisk donates to Next Door to help educate teens on dating abuse
Long time supporter, SanDisk, has donated $25,000 through their new initiative to support the health and welfare of children and youth in our local community. Their generous grant will help Next Door’s POWER Program (Proud of Wanting Equal Relationships) recruit and train local teens to act as ambassadors of healthy relationships in San Jose and surrounding areas to their peers. As a direct result of SanDisk’s support, Next Door will train ten local youth about teen dating abuse and violence, the ways in which digital technology can be used to harm a dating partner, and community mobilization and outreach techniques. SanDisk support will also help facilitate the POWER Program’s annual Youth Survey, which will reach 100 local teens and assess and evaluate their perspectives on dating abuse as well as help raise their awareness about healthy and unhealthy relationships. Next Door is grateful for SanDisk’s long-term support in this effort to help stop the violence before it starts.
