MVP Strategies Gender Violence Prevention Train-the-Trainer Training

MVP is a widely acclaimed leadership program that motivates both men, women and non-binary individuals to play a central role in solving problems that historically have been considered “women’s issues:” rape, relationship abuse, sexual assault and harassment. Founded in 1993, MVP is the original "bystander" program in the field of gender violence prevention education. The MVP approach views all individuals not as potential perpetrators or victims, but as empowered bystanders who can recognize and confront harassment and abuse before, during and after the fact. The MVP Program inspires leadership by empowering individuals with tools to lead and effect positive change in their peer cultures.
In Iowa, MVP training is available through the UNI Center for Violence Prevention and is delivered by certified teams under the guidance of Alan Heisterkamp, Ed.D., Director, Center for Violence Prevention at the University of Northern Iowa.
