The Shining Stars this month are the League of Legal Professionals. They donated over 50 filled purses, gift cards, toiletries, and money to support and sustain our mission! We are blessed to have faithful and caring groups like this to help make survivors within the community we serve.

The Shining Star this month is the Youth Summit sponsored by EndAbuse Wisconsin. The summit focused on youth from southeastern Wisconsin and hosted workshops on art/music/technology/media and how they play a role in violence. There were many conversations about healthy relationships, teen dating, sexual violence and how it affects youth, speaking up about sexual abuse, supporting friends in difficult relationships and so much more. These educational summits are key in preventing violence, sexual and otherwise.

The Stars that Shine are the 8 youth who participated in the Youth summit. The youth were very respectful and appreicative for the opportunity to engage with this summit. Some comments from the youth:

"I started thinking no one would understand my hurt or my situation or even the way that I am but because of Fresh start Learning, I know I'm not the only one or not alone."

"Thank you for allowing us to share our experiences."

"Thank you so much for bringing me and the other teens to Wisconsin Dells. We are learning so much from being here like dating abuse and what sexting is and we also got to hear other peoples stories."
