Teens Acting Against Violence (TAAV) is a student-led anti-violence education group that was formed in 1996 by the Tundra Women’s Coalition in Bethel.
The evaluation was two-pronged, focusing on the program effectiveness itself, and the short- and long-term benefits experienced by TAAV alumni over 18 years of age.
