TEAR stands for Teens Experiencing Abusive Relationships. TEAR is an organization founded by teens in 2003 with the mission to prevent dating abuse through education. We work to educate society about the complexities and seriousness of violent dating relationships.

TEAR provides educational presentations and has created a Dating Violence Curriculum. Please click the following links for more information about our presentations or our curriculum.
