Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Secondary Education

We are dedicated to helping middle and high schools and youth organizations reduce gender and relationship violence by promoting healthy relationship behaviors to ultimately create a culture of strong respect among adolescents. We utilize prevention programs, including curricular and co-curricular activities, to raise awareness of the underlying causes by highlighting the ‘red flags’ of dating relationships.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

We believe colleges and universities can and should do more to prevent gender and relationship violence. We work to provide higher education institutions with training opportunities and resources to improve their prevention and response efforts to sexual violence, partner violence and stalking on campus.

Population(s) Served
Young adults

We believe in the power of speaking out about the issues of gender and relationship violence. In partnership with community organizations, we work to provide community-wide educational and prevention programs that reduce violence. Our efforts also includes mobilizing others to volunteer and make a difference in their communities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission is to provide quality educational programming that prevents gender and relationship violence. Working with secondary schools, colleges and universities, and community-based organizations and agencies, Jana's Campaign delivers specialized comprehensive prevention programming that is designed to prevent violence, build healthy relationships and create new social norms.

First and foremost, Jana's Campaign believes that gender and relationship violence is preventable. The ultimate goal of our programs is to stop violence before it starts. Our efforts include primary, secondary and tertiary prevention approaches. Second, we believe that prevention efforts must address all levels of the social ecological model. This calls for comprehensive behavioral and attitudinal changes at the individual, relationship, community, and social levels. Finally, Jana's Campaign utilizes evidence-based prevention strategies and practices that illustrate the greatest impact. Our educational programs are designed to raise awareness, reduce risk factors while supporting protective measures, engage bystanders, promote healthy and respectful relationships, and encourage the development of new social norms.

We are a national group of activists, advocates and volunteers who are committed to continuing Jana's work of preventing gender and relationship violence. At the heart of our movement are Dr. Christie Brungardt (Jana's mother) and Dr. Curt Brungardt (Jana's stepfather). Both Christie and Curt are professors of leadership studies at Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas. Dr. Christie Brungardt's expertise includes women and leadership and women's studies, while Dr. Curt Brungardt specializes in political leadership, social change, and community organizing. Supporting the Brungardts are dozens of advocates, including Jana's Campaign staff members, active board members, college interns, and volunteers all working at the local, state, national and international level to reduce gender-based violence.
