CLINTON — The Franciscan Peace Center is donating Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) program kits to nine area high schools in an effort to help stem the trend of sexual violence before it starts.
CBIM is geared towards junior and high school athletic teams. CBIM, developed nationally by Futures Without Violence, aims to inspire men to teach boys the importance of respecting women and that violence never equals strength. The program equips coaches with tools to help their young athletes build respectful, non-violent relationships. The CBIM Coaches Kit curriculum consists of a series of coach-to-athlete “teach-easy tactics and trainings” that illustrate ways to model respect and promote healthy relationships and choices among youth. The CBIM card series instructs coaches on how to incorporate themes associated with teamwork, integrity, fair play and respect into their daily practice and routine. Formalized instruction generally takes no more than 15 minutes each week. Research studies have proven the program’s effectiveness.
To find out more about the CBIM program and potentially enroll a team you are involved with, please contact Lori Freudenberg at lfreudenberg@clintonfranciscans.com or call (563) 242-7611.
