What is the "Train the Trainer" Institute?
The MVP Institute is a two-day, leadership training designed for educators and service providers along with their community partners who desire to integrate the MVP model into their respective programming. The Institute consists of two phases. In Phase I, individuals go through the training as participants and in Phase II, participants practice facilitating the MVP curriculum and create MVP implementation plans. The MVP curriculum is broken into four educational units: battery, gender roles, alcohol and consent, and sexual harassment. Upon completion of the Institute, participants are certified to utilize MVP with their direct service population. Go to: www.uni.edu/cvp to download registration form.
