Learn The Basics : Boys

The goal of the Learn The Basics Program is to encourage young men to “Learn The Basics” about teen dating violence and equality in relationships in our crusade against adult domestic violence.


Program Overview

Learn The Basics was conceived in 2012 in the state of Pennsylvania by the Beginning Over Foundation in collaboration with a grant from the Verizon Foundation.

learn-the-basics-kit-tnLearn The Basics is a program of the Beginning Over Foundation dedicated to mobilizing schools, athletic associations, boy scouts and any other civic group interested in the fight against domestic violence across the United States.

Learn The Basics build awareness of teen dating abuse and educates boys in grades 5 through 12 to increase their understanding of teen dating abuse.

Learn The Basics program believes that when educating boys on teen dating abuse we must first provide a comfortable setting where male students can engage together on the issue separate from female students.
