Coaching Boys into Men

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: All coaches of male high school athletic teams are welcome to submit an application. Coaches who have attended in the past and who would like to attend again may submit an application. The training is also open to school administrators.

Scholarships: Scholarships to attend the training are provided and include-travel, lodging and per diem

Applications: Applications for the Training are attached to this message.
