We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Ms. Crista Scalfari, Elizabeth Forward Reading Teacher, for her efforts in coordinating our visit back to Elizabeth Forward High School. We shared Demi’s message and our Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Program with 700 plus students.
What a warm welcome we received from the administration and the student body. Following the presentation, Dr. Cuccia was presented with a $500 donation in honor of Demi to the Demi Brae Cuccia Awareness Org. We applaud the students and the faculty for their gracious generosity. Please know that we will pay this good deed forward so that others may benefit from your good intentions.
Teen Dating Violence can be prevented, especially when there is a focus on reducing risk factors as well as fostering protective factors, and when teens are empowered through family, friends, and others (including role models such as teachers, coaches, mentors, and youth group leaders) to lead healthy lives and establish healthy relationships.
Thank you, Elizabeth Forward, for receiving Demi’s message!
