We are looking for students: leaders, athletes, Greeks, club members – anyone interested in specialized training in bystander intervention.
The Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) program, founded in 1993 at Northeastern University motivates student leaders to play a central role in solving crucial problems including sexual assault, relationship violence and harassment. Utilizing a unique bystander approach to prevention, the highly interactive curriculum sparks discussions among the students that convey concrete options for both men and women to interrupt, confront and prevent violence by their friends, peers, or teammates. Program participants also develop leadership skills and learn to serve as role models to mentor and educate their peers as well as younger students on these issues. The approach does not involve finger-pointing or blame – instead it sounds a positive call for proactive, preventative behavior and leadership.
We offered the program in past semesters and all participants reported that it was extremely helpful and very enjoyable. 6 weekly sessions will begin in October during the Fall semester. Space is limited to 30 students, and we hope to have an equal number of men and women in the class. Attendance at all 6 sessions is expected and required. There is no fee, but an application is required.
At the conclusion of the training, Marist MVP students will receive a certificate of completion.
This is the 12-hour non-credit MVP class offered free for Marist students.
This program is a collaborative project between Marist College and Family Services of Poughkeepsie on a grant from the New York State Health Department received by their prevention educator and funding from the United Way of Dutchess-Orange.
