What: Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) is a comprehensive violence prevention curriculum for coaches and their athletes developed by Futures without Violence. The program engages athletic coaches through the Coaches Leadership Program to help shape the attitudes and behaviors of young male athletes. Athletic coaches play an extremely influential and unique role in the lives of young men, often serving as a parent or mentor to the boys they coach. Because of these special relationships, coaches are poised to positively influence how young men think and behave both on, and off, the field. From speeches to the team, practice sessions, or simply casual conversation, coaches have many opportunities to impart their philosophies to athletes. CBIM is currently being implemented by high school coaches of male athletic teams throughout the state.
Who: This training will be especially geared towards coaches who have attended in the past and would like a refresher course. However, the program will be open to all coaches of male high school athletic teams, athletic directors and school administrators. It is being held as a pre-conference event to coincide with the 2018 School Health and Wellness Institute.
Scholarships: Scholarships to attend the training are provided and include-travel, lodging and per diem
Applications: Applications for the Training are available by contacting Ann Rausch, Program Coordinator II, Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault at firstname.lastname@example.org
