PREVNet is located at Queen’s University, situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory. This territory is included in the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Confederacy of the Ojibwe and Allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes, and we are committed to honouring this agreement. As settlers, we are grateful to have the opportunity to meet, work, learn, and play here.

PREVNet works to eliminate violence and promote healthy relationships for youth and is dedicated to working toward addressing the systemic racism and the impacts of colonization that puts marginalized groups at higher risks of violence. PREVNet believes it is our collective responsibility to listen, learn, and act to ensure the rights of Indigenous people are recognized and implemented.

Community of Practice – Addressing Youth Dating Violence

As Canada’s Healthy Relationships Hub, PREVNet is now bringing together researchers and national organizations to build research capacity, assess youth dating violence problems and promote evidence-based programs and effective policies across Canada to address and reduce youth dating violence.

Through 21 dedicated research projects and a National Youth Advisory Council, PREVNet aims to educate the country about youth dating violence and its associated negative effects. Together, we can promote healthy relationships, respect, social responsibility and citizenship in our youth.
