With the efforts of SWV and partner organizations 29 volunteers and coordinators from 6 countries were engaged in "Love and Respect; Preventing Teen Dating Violence" project reaching over 1500 young people to raise awareness and prevent teen dating violence.

"Ambassadors of Love & Respect: Involving Peer Educators in addressing Teen Dating Violence" brochure provides instructions on how to engage volunteers as peer workers in preventive programs.

Research suggests that young people are more likely to hear and personalize messages, and thus to change their attitudes and behaviours, if they believe the messenger is similar to them and faces the same concerns and pressures. Numerous studies have demonstrated the positive influence of their peers on youth's health behaviours, in regards to various aspects, such as relationships, sexuality, violent behaviours, substance use, social exclusion/inclusion etc.
