  • Mission:
  • Break the Cycle inspires and supports youth in creating healthy relationships and creating a culture without abuse.

  • Overview:
  • Break the Cycle inspires and supports youth in creating healthy relationships and creating a culture without abuse. Our goals include:

    • Engaging young people and allied adults to take action to end violence
    • Having youth led activities
    • Developing and providing tools for other organizations to respond to dating violence among youth
    • Providing accessible and effective legal services to traditionally underserved populations
    • Leading national policy efforts that impact youth and young people experiencing violence

  • History:
  • Meredith Blake, a practicing attorney in Los Angeles, California noticed a distinct gap in services for young women who were experiencing dating violence and seeking remedy through the court system. She began to take on teen cases free of charge and over time saw an increasing demand for her services. She herself was shocked when she found that 1 out of 3 young people was experiencing some form of dating abuse. After a great deal of research and time volunteering at a domestic violence shelter, she launched Break the Cycle in 1996 to address the dating violence epidemic by exclusively serving youth ages 12 to 24. Shortly afterwards she hired policy and prevention experts to provide additional supportive programs and advocacy.

    The Break the Cycle programs have since evolved and now rest in the social ecological and well- being theory of change. We realize that young people do not live in isolation and all the variants around them impact their ability to identify abusive relationships and move towards the creation of healthy ones. Break the Cycle information and services have reached over 7,000,000 youth and adult allies through prevention, intervention and advocacy initiatives since its inception.
