Coaching Boys into Men

Calling All Coaches!
AVDA’s 2017-18 Coaching Boys into Men Program
FREE Abuse Prevention Training Program
August 10, Noon to 4 p.m. with complimentary lunch

Counts toward Professional Development

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Houston-area coaches of middle and high school, college, and select male teams are invited to attend this free training, which counts toward professional development.

WHY: One in three high school students experiences physical, emotional, sexual, and/or verbal abuse by her/his dating partner. CBIM is a violence prevention program for athletic coaches designed to inspire them to teach their young male athletes about the importance of respect for themselves, others, and particularly women and girls. Since athletes are often popular leaders among their peers, they can in turn influence an entire school’s culture.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
AVDA hosts the initial training and offers support throughout the athletic season, including free training materials necessary to implement the CBIM program. Over the course of the school year, CBIM coaches lead their players through brief, weekly activities that address themes such as personal responsibility, respectful behaviors and relationship abuse. Topics covered each week include insulting language, disrespectful behavior, digital abuse and what it means to “be a man.”

As a result of this training, athletic coaches will:

  • Better understand their role as a coach in influencing how young men treat women and girls;
  • Recognize “teachable moments” when they occur; and
  • Possess the tools to educate young men regarding dating violence.Teams are encouraged to involve their fans, parents, faculty, other students and school administrators in support of CBIM’s message.

Coaching Boys into Men is a program of Futures Without Violence.

Dr. Curt Brungardt, a professor at Fort Hays University, Executive Director of the Center for Civic Leadership and a national CBIM Advisory Board Member, will facilitate the training based on the curriculum that helps male student athletes to build character, maintain healthy relationships, and prevent dating and sexual violence.

Registration is required , and space is limited. This free training includes complimentary lunch and all materials necessary to implement the CBIM program. To register, contact Nicole Jones-Franklin at NicoleF@avda-tx.orgor 713.715.6921.
