9AM - 5PM
John D. O'Bryant African-American Institute at Northeastern University
MVP is a leadership program that motivates both men and women to play a central role in solving problems that have historically been considered “women’s issues:” rape, battery, and sexual harassment. Utilizing the unique bystander approach to prevention, the MVP program views all individuals not as potential perpetrators or victims, but as empowered bystanders who can recognize and confront abuse. The MVP Program inspires leadership by empowering individuals with concrete options to effect change on these issues.
The MVP Institute is a three-day interactive training designed for adults and adult educators, led by engaging and knowledgeable teams of male and female facilitators. Upon completion of the Institute, participants receive a copy of the MVP curriculum and are certified to utilize it with their direct service population. Male and female adult educators and youth service providers are encouraged to attend. The Institute is also open to other adults who are interested in exploring the topic of men’s violence against women.
