Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM) is an internationally-acclaimed prevention program that enlists coaches’ support in modeling healthy masculinity and relationships. You’ve probably heard about it—but did you know that this model is backed by powerful evidence? In a study by UC Davis, young men who participated in the program said that they were more likely to interrupt abusive behavior from a friend—and they were significantly more likely to take action to stop it.

Our two-day CBIM training is perfect for any advocate or preventionist from a DV/SA organization or college/university that is ready to deepen its work to engage coaches and athletes in the prevention of relationship and sexual violence. Yesenia Gorbea and Brian O’Connor of Futures Without Violence will offer thorough support to participants as they plan for implementation.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of and present on CBIM content.

  • Implement skills on effective community organizing.
  • Demonstrate ability to conduct CBIM Coaches Clinic Training.
