What is a Peer Advocate Crew (PAC)?
The PAC (Peer Advocate Crew) is a student-run club which provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to healthy, unhealthy and abusive relationships/friendships and work together to prevent the root causes of teen dating violence, domestic violence and sexual assault in a generation. PAC's follow the bloom365 motto to Bring Love On Others More, 365 Days a year.
Three core functions of a PAC are to:
1. Educate: Heighten awareness on red flags, root causes and resources through peer to peer education
2. Advocate: Support and validate teen survivors and remove barriers to help
3. Activate: Build community by activating teens and trusted adult allies to work together to cultivate a culture, free of dating abuse, sexual assault and gender based violence
