Coaching Boys Into Men Summit at PNC Park
Coaches and athletic directors are invited to attend a Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM) half-day informational session or a full-day training session on April 7 at PNC Park. The full-day session will prepare coaches to implement CBIM. Coaches currently implementing the program will lead attendees through hands-on training exercises and role play. Five Act 48 credits are available for the full-day training.
Tony Porter, an author, educator and activist, will deliver the keynote. As the co-founder of A CALL TO MEN, Mr. Porter is internationally recognized for his efforts to promote healthy respectful expressions of manhood and to prevent violence against women and girls.
Attendees will learn about Coaching Boys Into Men, a program that equips high school coaches with the tools to talk to their male athletes about healthy relationships, respectful behaviors and more. CBIM allows coaches to instill life skills, while empowering athletes to hold each other accountable and be positive role models for their peers.
The summit is free to attend. Registration is required by April 1.
