The Amanda Forum was formed in the summer of 2013 in response to the death of a local teen, Amanda Bach, who lost her life to teen dating violence. A component of The Caring Place and funded by a Porter County Women's Impact Fund grant, the Amanda Forum consists of an adult task force of professionals and a youth task force of high school students from across Porter County, Indiana. Our mission is to raise awareness of youth dating violence in Porter County through discussion, education, and mentoring with a focus on developing the protective factors of healthy relationship and pro-social skills and resilience. Both males and females are affected by dating violence and break-up violence; in fact, current studies suggest 1 in 3 of our young people are affected in some way by dating violence. We seek to help both boys and girls learn healthy ways to deal with dating relationships and the stress of breaking up.
