NORTH PLATTE, Neb. KNOP-TV Statistics by the National Teen Dating Abuse Hotline show one in three high school and college students will experience dating violence

The Rape and Domestic Abuse Program and Community Connections Youth Leadership teamed up to end dating violence as part of Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

On Tuesday, they passed out orange bracelets as part of their bracelet campaign.

This is the second year both groups have teamed up to end dating violence. It's a problem students say is prevalent in their school.

"Just letting those kids who are struggling with domestic violence or like assault of any kind, verbal or physical, to let them know they are not alone," said Aspen Golter. "There are other kids going through the exact same thing and there are organizations like this one that are out there to help them."

If you or someone you know is needs help, you can contact the National Teen Dating Violence hotline by texting "LOVEIS" to 22522.
