The Fall Institute will take place from 10AM to 4PM, on Tuesday, October 13 through Thursday, October 15, 2020 via our new digital platform. There will be an hour long break as well as two 15-minute breaks to alleviate screen fatigue.
The MVP Institute is a three-day, highly interactive training. During the first part of the training, participants experience the MVP curriculum for themselves, providing them with knowledge on the bystander approach to gender-based violence prevention. These sessions expose participants to units on Leadership, Battering, Sexual Assault/Rape, Gender Role, Sexual Harassment and Homophobia/Heterosexism. Each unit is participatory and involves a variety of educational approaches (large group, small group, single gender breakouts, media examples and discussion-based). In the second component of the training, participants prepare to train their others in the MVP approach by practicing facilitation of MVP with other participants. Participants who complete the entire training receive certification to use the curriculum with members of their organization and community.
