The Dibble Institute's picture

The Dibble Institute 

The Dibble Institute, an independent, non-profit organization, translates research into teaching tools, which help young people gain agency in their romantic lives. Our goal is to help young people, through skills and knowledge acquisition, make healthy romantic relationships decisions now that empower them to realize their future goals and dreams. We develop research-informed, evidence-based curricula that schools use in health and Family and Consumer Sciences classes as well as in expectant and parenting student, social and emotional learning, and chronic absence programs. Focus areas include healthy relationship skills, pregnancy prevention, violence reduction, trauma interventions, self-regulation, and social and emotional learning.
