Every year, millions of Americans are effected by violence. They are our mothers and fathers, our sisters and brothers, our sons and daughters, and our friends. It is time we all do something to stop violence. The Center for the Study of Sport in Society offers two innovative programs that address violence prevention using the Bystander Approach:  Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) and Project Teamwork (PTW).

Project Teamwork is a “model violence prevention program“- Bill Clinton, Former United States President
