Safe Smart Dating
ZBT offers a holistic approach to creating a healthy environment for students on campuses today.
One of our key programs is the award-winning Safe Smart Dating, developed in partnership with Sigma Delta Tau Sorority and Jewish Women International, now one of the premier national workshops on dating abuse and sexual assault for the Greek community on college campuses. This program helps college students define, identify and prevent dating abuse and sexual violence on campus. Safe Smart Dating is an interactive educational program designed to explore gender norms, define healthy relationships and train participants on how to be active bystanders.
Since its debut in 2013, the program has received a $50,000 grant from the Jewish Social Change Matching Fund and the North-American Interfraternity Conference’s Laurel Wreath Award, which is presented to individuals or groups in recognition of their unique programs, community outreach or influence within the fraternal world.
How can I bring Safe Smart Dating to my campus?
ZBT aims to have every chapter and colony hear this program at least once every three years. We work with staff and volunteer facilitators to schedule presentations.
