Coaching Boys into Men

Futures Without Violence Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) program is an evidence-based 12-step curriculum that provides high school athletic coaches with the resources they need to promote respectful behavior among their players and help prevent relationship abuse, harassment, and sexual assault.

For more than a decade, the program has been implemented in communities across the U.S. and around the world. From Sacramento and Dallas, to India and South Africa, the program’s messages have proven universal.

The CBIM curriculum consists of a series of coach-to-athlete trainings that illustrate ways to model respect and promote healthy relationships. 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.

Safe Shelter continually works with high schools in the St Vrain Valley School District to bring this powerful program to their schools to help teach their young male athletes healthy relationship skills and that violence never equals strength.
