Wear Orange Day
According to the 2015 Otsego County Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 12% of high school females and 5% of high school males report that they have been the victim of physical and sexual dating violence. Dating violence can impact learning and may lead to a range of social, emotional, and other health problems in adulthood.
TO HELP RAISE AWARENESS AND MINIMIZE THE IMPACT OF DATING VIOLENCE, OFO IS ENCOURAGING PEOPLE AROUND OTSEGO COUNTY TO PARTICIPATE IN WEAR ORANGE DAY ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2019. This event coincides with Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month and the national #Orange4Love Day.
Implementing Wear Orange Day is as simple as wearing an orange shirt, jewelry, shoes, nail polish, or a ribbon during the day. For those who want to take additional steps to promote awareness, the Violence Intervention Program can provide informational materials on dating violence, program services, and resources, and is available to provide free, on-site prevention education to students, faculty, and parents.
For more information, outreach materials, or to schedule a prevention education program, contact the Violence Intervention Program at 607.433.8038.
