Coaching Boys Into Men

Athletic coaches play an extremely influential and unique role in the lives of young men.

Coaching Boys Into Men (CBIM) is the only evidence-based prevention program that trains and motivates high school coaches to teach their young male athletes healthy relationship skills and that violence never equals strength.
