Prince George’s County Council Awards Domestic Violence Grant to Gridiron Terminal ©™ in Partnership with DeMatha Catholic High School
The Prince George’s County Council announced in June that DeMatha Catholic High School would be the recipient of a $40,000 Domestic Violence Prevention Grant to implement the first ever student domestic violence prevention program. DeMatha Catholic High School S.A.V.E. (Sport Anti Violence Environment) in collaboration with Gridiron Terminal ©™ will launch during the fall of 2017, educating student athletes and coaches throughout Prince George’s County over a 12-month span on domestic violence. Gridiron Terminal ©™ is a domestic violence prevention program aimed to break the cycle of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and encourage healthy relationships.
With DeMatha Catholic High School being a faith-based feeder school for top athletic universities in the country, the school community and administration have made healthy relationships and domestic violence prevention a top priority. Gridiron Terminal ©™ was created by Prince George’s County resident and Domestic Violence Advocate Tokeitha K. Wilson, a two-time bestselling author and national advocate against abuse, sexual assault, bullying and health disparities among women and youth.
Together, Tokeitha K. Wilson and DeMatha Catholic High School will tackle the importance of domestic violence awareness in Prince George’s County creating a new generation of community leaders.
