Coaching Boys Into Men

Coaching Boys into Men

The Center for Violence Prevention at the University of Northern Iowa is partnering with the Iowa High School Athletic Association to conduct a Coaching Boys into Men™ (CBIM) training this January in Cedar Falls and West Des Moines. 

Coaching Boys into Men is a national, evidence-based program that instructs and encourages athletic coaches, mentors and teachers to use their influence to build positive character, promote healthy relationships and prevent incidents of sexual and dating violence among secondary school students. 

This year's workshops will also include Athletes As Leaders™, a new program for high school athletes on girls’ sports teams. The program aims to empower student-athletes to take an active role in promoting healthy relationships and ending sexual violence. Athletes are encouraged to be leaders in changing social norms at school (and beyond) to a culture of safety and respect.  

The below training is reserved for Leading to Prevent schools and their coaches of boys' and girls' sports.
