You are never too young to stand up for what you believe in.

Students Tackle Abusive Relationships


STAR was founded to give teens in Dallas a chance to come together in support of the Genesis mission. We believe that the younger we are when we become involved in bettering the world around, the more opportunities we have to lead a fulfilling and positive life. STAR gives students the chance to teach others around them the importance of domestic violence awareness, particularly surrounding teen dating violence.

Members of STAR get to participate in annual activities and help us further our message to the next generation so they can be a part of ending domestic violence. We are now accepting STAR membership applications for the 2018-2019 school year! Students are encouraged to visit to submit their application no later than Friday, May 4.
