Teen Dating Violence Awareness Program

What does the ADMYRE program look like? 

  • PIAL began offering a new teen dating violence awareness program in February 2022. ADMYRE: Advocating for My Relationships includes a simulation where students walk through one of eight true short stories and a robust debrief where students are empowered to use resources and promote healthy relationships in their own lives. While this was created for middle school and high school youth, it is also suitable for the emerging adult community.  
  • We encourage you to have a school counselor present for students in case they feel the need to talk to someone about what they experienced during the simulation.

What do you need for the simulation?

The following is a list of what we need to create the best simulation at your school:

  • A room for the simulation large enough to allow groups of students to walk around to 12 stations on the perimeter of the room
  • 6 tables large enough to allow for 5 students per table
  • A minimum of 90 minutes to complete the simulation
  • A maximum of 30 students per session
  • Access to a projector screen or wall Please provide the necessary information by clicking on the ADMYRE sim request if you would like our team to present ADMYRE. This information will help us best accommodate your needs and know how many staff to bring.
