Stronger Than You Think℠

Join the campaign. End relationship abuse.

In February of 2013, SAVE collaborated with local students at Mission San Jose and Irvington High Schools to launch the Stronger Than You Think (#strongertyt) campaign.

Stronger Than You Think encourages peer support for students experiencing dating abuse by recognizing their inner strength. The campaign was initially started by a generous grant from Kaiser Permanente.

Since its start, Team STYT has…

  • Present yearly on healthy relationships for the GSA Network Youth Empowerment Summit
  • Developed a “Love Is…” social media campaign to raise awareness of healthy relationships during Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month
  • Created a PSA and digital billboard campaign that runs during February on theaters screens in Fremont, Newark, and Hayward, California
  • Host an annual youth-led conference to foster conversations around healthy relationships, dating violence prevention, LGBTQ+ empowerment and youth activism- Symbiosis
