Nearly 1.5 million U.S. high school students experience physical abuse by a dating partner in one year, according to statistics from lovisrepect.org.

Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) is a program of Futures Without Violence, a non-profit organization that works to end violence. The program helps build healthy relationships and prevent violence before it even starts. 

Thousands of coaches around the world have used the CBIM program to show their athletes that they are their mentors on and off the field. 

The themes addressed during the brief weekly activities include personal responsibility, respectful behavior, and relationship abuse. ASPEN and Park High School are teaming up to begin using the CBIM program with Park High School football and soccer athletes and coaches during the 2019-‘20 school year.  

The community will have two opportunities to learn more about the CBIM program. The first is during the Lunch & Learn from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22 at the Livingston Food Resource Center. The second is after the film screening of the documentary, “Roll Red Roll”, which highlights a Midwestern town that turns a blind eye to sexual assault in order to protect male athletes.  

 Child care will be available from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts and the film will be in the theatre. A short discussion will follow. 

The Lunch and Learn is free however registration is required.  You may register at: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4273889 or call ASPEN’s office.

Please call Jenny Jo at ASPEN 406-222-5902 ext. 5 with any questions.
