Powerful, unique and cutting edge programs that teach young people how to avoid getting into unhealthy relationships, how to overcome from abuse, how to create healthy, safe, respectful relationships with themselves and others, and how to be effective agents of positive change in their worlds. 

Mission: REAL Relationships believes that the most effective and efficient way to prevent relationship violence is to educate our youth. With one in three young people experiencing relationship abuse, 60% admitting they don’t know what a healthy relationship looks like, and a stunning 70% report wanting relationship education, the need for these programs has never been greater. REAL Relationships talks to youth and young  adults about REAL life. We help students become safe, empowered, healthy and confident in their relationships.

Karen Addison has proudly worked with: 



“If every teenager around the country could hear what she has to say about respecting ourselves and each other, our generation would grow up to be a light and to be very respected. She definitely knows what she is talking about, and her talents and knowledge should be given the opportunity to spread to to the many people around her.”  

– Fabbiana Progar, Student

"When Karen Addison walks into a room, people take note. She is attractive, well spoken, enthusiastic and friendly. I was drawn to her passion for young people. She has an uncanny ability to develop and implement curriculum to young people with exuberance and extravagance that captivates and engages them."
