Safe Smart Dating
Safe Smart Dating, developed in partnership between ZBT, Sigma Delta Tau Sorority, and Jewish Women International, is one of the premier national workshops on dating abuse and sexual assault for the Greek community on college campuses that 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 to 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.
“This program is a valuable resource for college-aged men to break down the stereotypes of the role that men play in a relationship. Men can, and should, understand how effective communication with their partner can lead to a better and healthier understanding between each other. Further, young men need to understand how to not only confront situations they know are wrong, but also to prevent such situations from arising in the first place, as well as learn how to serve as an ally to men and women in need of one,” Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity Executive Director Laurence A. Bolotin, CAE, Alpha Zeta (Florida) '01, said.
