Coaching Boys Into Men

CFRC supports the Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) program, which is a comprehensive violence prevention curriculum for coaches and their athletes developed by Futures without Violence.The program engages athletic coaches through the Coaches Leadership Program to help shape the attitudes and behaviors of young male athletes. Athletic coaches play an extremely influential and unique role in the lives of young men, often serving as a parent or mentor to the boys they coach. Because of these special relationships, coaches are poised to positively influence how young men think and behave both on, and off, the field. From speeches to the team, practice sessions, or simply casual conversation, coaches have many opportunities to impart their philosophies to athletes.

The Fourth R

CFRC also works with the Cordova School District to provide a relationship-based prevention curriculum for  grades 7-9 that is embedded in school-based physical and health education, to promote healthy relationships and reduce interpersonal violence, dating violence and other adolescent risk behaviors. The Fourth R has been adapted for use in Alaska, the most recent adaptation includes the Fourth R Alaska Grade 9 version which is an Alaskan-relevant curriculum containing 21 lessons.
