“Man, this isn’t a training, it’s a conversation. Thank you!” This statement, from a male student-athlete at the conclusion of one of our Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) training sessions affirms what we have long believed: teaching sexual violence prevention to teens and young adults can be a transformative experience for them if done correctly.

MVP is a gender violence, bullying and gay-bashing prevention program that was the first large-scale attempt to apply the bystander approach to issues of sexual and domestic violence. MVP has been delivered at over 150 college campuses, to 15,000 high school students, along with all the major pro sports leagues, and every branch of the U.S. military

Many people want to help with violence prevention but lack the skills necessary to intervene in a safe manner. The key is to engage them in a process that leads to empowered skill building and decision-making. The heart of the MVP model is interactive discussion, in single-sex and mixed-gender workshops, using real-life scenarios that speak to the experiences of young men and women.

Please join us for a FREE introductory MVP training on Feb 28th at the LA84 Foundation.  The training is open to nonprofit staff who work directly with teens and young adults. Lunch will be served. Space is limited to 30 participants.

Please RSVP for this complementary MVP training. The event is free but registration is required.
