Mentors in Violence Prevention

This national program uses a bystander empowerment approach to preventing men’s violence against women. Instead of looking at participants as victims or perpetrators, the curriculum focuses on teaching participants concrete skills they can use as bystanders to intervene in potentially abusive situations. Learn more about the VT MVP program to see how you can bring it to your group.
