Coaching Boys Into Men Advisory Summit
On Wednesday, August 10, a Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM) Advisory Summit will be held at Robert Morris University, the first university in the region to implement the CBIM program. Area athletic directors and superintendents are encouraged to attend.
Coaching Boys Into Men, an evidence-based program, seeks to combat dating violence and other abusive behavior by giving high school and college coaches the tools to talk to their athletes about healthy relationships. The curriculum centers on the important role coaches play in the lives of many boys and young men, often acting as mentors to the kids they coach. Attendees will hear from athletes, coaches and school administrators who have embraced this cause and/or implemented the program.
Presenters include Addie A. Muti, Robert Morris University Associate Director of Athletics for Operations and Senior Women’s Administrator, Montour School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Ghilani, and a diverse panel of coaches from Robert Morris University, Homewood-Brushton YMCA, Saint Vincent College and Westinghouse High School.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with trainers and learn how CBIM could fit into their athletic programs.
The August 10 program will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Charles L. Sewall Center on Robert Morris University’s Moon Campus. RSVP to CBIM@paar.net by August 1.
This event is sponsored by Robert Morris University, FISA Foundation, United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh Action Against Rape.
