Comments Off on Mentors in Violence Prevention Leadership Training Opportunity

You asked, we listened.

Dozens of men representing a wide variety of organizations expressed the need for more in-depth training on domestic and sexual violence prevention strategies, as well as the desire to work collaboratively with other community partners on this issue.

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh–in partnership with the FISA Foundation and the Heinz Endowments–is pleased to offer Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), a leadership training program for men committed to integrating domestic and sexual violence prevention strategies into their organizations’ work.


The highly regarded MVP program–developed by Jackson Katz, an internationally recognized author, filmmaker, and educator–will accept a cohort of 30 local men for this exciting, highly interactive leadership development program. This six-month training program is free, and participants will be eligible to receive a $1,000 grant toward implementing prevention strategies into their organizations.

Don’t miss this opportunity to become a leader in Southwestern Pennsylvania’s growing movement of men working to end violence against women.


Applications are due on May 1, 2015, and the cohort will be announced on May 15, 2015. Applications and more information available here.
