The Coaching Boys Into Men program raises awareness in male athletes and offers them prevention strategies around the issues of domestic, dating, and sexual violence, as well as deepening athletes’ understanding of teamwork, personal accountability and sportsmanship, while magnifying the virtues of respect, integrity and non-violence — especially as they apply to interpersonal relationships. Made in cooperation with Young Adult Abuse Prevention Program and Futures Without Violence.
