Mentors in Violence Prevention Program


Our Goals:

  • To raise awareness among young men and women of issues that traditionally have been considered “women’s issues.”

  • To encourage men and women not merely to be bystanders, but to play an active role in reducing sexual violence, harassment, and abuse.

  • To empower high school student-athletes and other student leaders to mentor and educate younger students on these issues.
