Urban Teen Dating Violence Epidemic Prompts Etiquette Tour

 DALLAS, TX — Urban etiquette industry leader NAUEP, (National Association of Urban Etiquette Professionals), a division of the award winning online community,www.urbangirlz.org announces the launch of the Just Me and You...Teen Dating Etiquette Tour in recognition of Teen Dating Violence Prevention Month in February.

According to African Voices Against Violence, Tufts University, the number one killer of African-American women ages 15 to 34 is homicide at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.  Furthermore, a study of eighth and ninth graders, Vangie A. Foshee of the Safe Date Project concluded that 25 percent of students indicated they had been victims of dating violence, including eight percent who disclosed being sexually abused.

"We had to break up a fight between an athlete and his girlfriend last week, and that wasn't the first time," says Yolanda D., school teacher.  "These statistics and incidences have become common place in urban relationships because urban teens are rarely exposed to teen dating etiquette. They often lack the communication, conflict management and dating etiquette skills crucial to maintaining healthy relationships," says UrbanGirlz, Inc. CEO and founder Trenette Wilson.

The teen dating etiquette tour, resource central and the Designer's Daughter novel and play are all a part of a campaign designed to bring awareness to the issue of teen dating violence in the urban community. 

The tour will kick off with the Just Me and You...Teen Dating Etiquette Tour specifically designed to empower urban youth with dating etiquette skills, conflict management techniques, and communication strategies.
