Take Back the Halls is a teen dating violence prevention and community activism program designed to empower teens to become community leaders and active participants in the movement to end violence. Interns work closely with middle-and/or high school students in Chicago Public Schools. In the process, they build their facilitation, communication and collaboration skills and they learn how to use activism in a classroom. Student interns work over the course of the academic year. They are paid hourly wages, they earn Junior Year Experiential learning credit, and they take the course WGS 387: Teen Violence Prevention in the Winter Quarter. It’s a great experience that lends itself to future work and study.
