Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) is one of the original gender violence, sexual harassment, and bullying prevention programs. It was first developed as a sports culture initiative in 1993 by Dr. Jackson Katz and his colleagues at Northeastern University’s Center for the Study of Sport in Society. The program was later expanded to include students and professionals in college, high school, the military, and a variety of organizations in the public and private sectors.
MVP Strategies is the flagship organization which provides training to organizations including the US Military, colleges, high schools and professional sports leagues. Other branches and initiatives of MVP include MVP National, Sport in Society, Center for Violence Prevention at the University of Northern Iowa, and Griffith University in Brisbane.
