  • Raise participant awareness of underlying issues and unique dynamics of all forms of men’s violence against women
  • Challenge participants to think critically and personally (empathize) about these issues
  • Open dialogue amongst participants about the dynamics and context of all forms of men’s violence against women
  • Inspire participants to be proactive leaders around these issues by challenging them to develop concrete options  for intervention in potentially dangerous situations involving peers

“Awesome and High Speed training on the front lines!! MVP came to Iraq in 2009 and provided the best Train-The-Trainer Bystander Intervention classes I have seen in my four years as a Army Equal Opportunity and Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program Manager. The “Unit MVPs” whom they trained walked away with an outstanding Playbook and an increased confidence level to address violence prevention with their fellow Soldiers and Leaders. Army Strong!”
