Website Launch: MVP Strategies

Monday, 27 April 2015

Announcing the much-anticipated launch of our newly-designed, comprehensive MVP website that provides information about one of the most effective and influential gender violence prevention approaches in the world! Visit the site today at:

Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) is one of the longest-running and most widely influential gender violence, sexual harassment and bullying prevention programs in the world. Founded in 1993, MVP has inspired countless men, women, boys and girls to challenge and change social, cultural and institutional norms that support abusive behavior.

Among its many accomplishments, MVP introduced the bystander approach (sometimes referred to as “bystander intervention”) to the sexual assault and relationship abuse prevention fields. Since the inception of this transformative concept, numerous educational institutions, sports leagues, businesses, social service programs and other organizations have adopted this and other aspects of MVP’s widely popular prevention strategies.

MVP Strategies was founded in 1997 to further the work of MVP in a variety of institutional settings in colleges, high schools, sports culture and the military. This web site contains useful background information about MVP Strategies initiatives in all of those areas, along with information about how to schedule trainings and consultations.
