GREENFIELD — A group of Hancock County teens has formed an alliance aimed at promoting safe and healthy relationships, and its members have started their work by volunteering to help adult domestic violence victims.

The teen group, nicknamed Do Your PARRT: Promoting Awareness for Respectful Relationships by Teens, serves as a youth branch of the Hancock County Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence. Its aim is to educate the county’s young people about risks teens often face when dating, organizers said.

As the school year kicks off, group members will work to reach their peers through a numbers of methods, including through posters and informational signs and fundraisers to support the organization.
