Verizon funds Next Door’s POWER youth program
The Verizon Foundation has once again shown its support for Next Door and local teens by funding Next Door’s POWER Program in the amount of $20,000. Thanks to the Verizon Foundation, Next Door’s POWER Program (Proud of Wanting Equal Relationships) is in its second year of implementing teen-driven Teen Dating Violence prevention, education and outreach campaigns. Verizon Foundation support will help this year’s eight POWER youth leaders create social media that help their peers learn about dating abuse through those portals they often frequent, such as Facebook Tumblr, YouTube, and Twitter. Verizon’s support will also help the POWER youth leaders reach middle-school aged teens to teach them how their sports help them engage in healthy relationships. We are, as always, for their support and look forward to partnering with them this year.
