As a response to the disproportionate number of young People of Color impacted by relationship abuse and sexual violence, we partnered with the UofSC School of Social Work to create The Buzzpak Curriculum in 2019.

This evidence-informed, culturally-specific program provides change-based solutions by empowering young people to be change agents in their communities, and it provides tools for developing and maintaining healthy relationships.
