Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) is an evidence-based violence prevention curriculum and program that trains athletic coaches on how to teach their young athletes that violence never equals strength, that violence in their relationships is wrong, and athletes can play a role in preventing violence. The program comes with strategies, scenarios, and resources needed to talk to boys, specifically, about healthy and respectful relationships, dating violence, sexual assault, and harassment. Evaluation of CBIM has demonstrated it is an evidence based program that prevents teen dating violence and sexual violence perpetration.
During this series, join CBIM developers, community advocates, trainers, and coaches in a series of discussions on: the history of engaging men with ‘coaching as a metaphor’ and through the use of CBIM, how to create community buy-in for violence prevention programming, and explore lessons learned from nationwide implementations of CBIM that have informed best practices for adaptations of curricula in the field. This series of web conferences provides an introduction and serves as a “train-the-trainer” to implement this program.
  1. Identify the guiding principles of CBIM and discuss how sports as a platform has become an effective tool for violence prevention and social change.
  2. Describe the Coaching Boys Into Men curricula, tools, and program content available to support a school or community implementation.
  3. Identify the skills, tools, and content necessary to conduct community outreach with proven models for successful and sustainable implementations.
