Education / Training

Preventing and addressing domestic violence, JBWS’ mission, is an immense task that requires a community-wide effort. JBWS invites members of the community to become part of the solution. Become knowledgeable, sensitive, and engaged in promoting healthy relationships. Invite JBWS to speak at your school, college, workplace, club meeting, or house of worship. Schedule a professional training program for your agency, hospital, firm, or department. Together, we can make a difference.


Research indicates that 1 in 3 high school students will be involved in a dating abuse relationship. JBWS offers educational presentations and counseling services specifically on dating abuse. This program provides age-specific lesson plans for 6th-12th grade classrooms and colleges as well as community youth groups and leadership programs for athletes. Youth are learning to understand the prevalence and warning signs of dating violence, discern healthy versus abusive behaviors, and know the resources for assisting a friend or themselves. The programs reach more than 8,000 teens per year in Morris County.

JBWS reaches out to local residents and employees to increase awareness of domestic violence issues, local resources and ways to help. Our experienced public speakers can tailor their presentations to meet the needs of any group. They can lead a discussion with a handful of your neighbors in a dining room over coffee or make a formal presentation at your next club or PTA meeting, business luncheon, place of worship, or other event. To schedule a presentation and learn how your organization can help JBWS, please email Lisa Martucci-Thibault at or call 973-267-7520 Ext. 124.
