Since we were founded in 1986, challenge has fueled the work we do. And today, it’s more important than ever that we continue to stand for the things we believe and raise our voices, no matter the opposition.

  1. We challenge the social concept of racism and reject all forms of violence because we believe that all violence is interconnected.
  2. We challenge the idea that the cycle of relationship violence can’t be broken 
  3. We challenge students to hold their relationships to the healthiest standards 
  4. We challenge the expectations of what kind of person is in an unhealthy or abusive relationship 
  5. We challenge young people to empower their peers and communities 
  6. We challenge youth to stand up for their loved ones when they see abuse and disrespect
  7. We challenge gender stereotypes, and what it means to “be a man”
  8. We challenge you to be your truest self
  9. We challenge the stereotypical language and media representations that keep us trapped in unhealthy behaviors
  10. We challenge ourselves to reflect on our own biases and perspective

This is a profound moment in time, and requires that we rise to challenge everyday.

We invite you to share your stories about facing and overcoming challenge–no challenge is too big or small. We are creating a safe space to share our challenges because it’s important to know that we’re not alone. Consider the #PAVEChallenge community as your support network.
