Community Education/Training

Outreach and education is key to preventing and breaking the cycle of domestic violence

Coaches play a critical role in shaping the character of our next generation of leaders. That character development starts with a healthy manhood.

— Joe Ehrmann, founder of Coach for America and Parade Magazine’s Most Important Coach in America.

At Interval House we know that outreach and education is key to helping prevent and break the cycle of domestic violence and to reduce the impact this societal issue has on victims, their families, friends, co-workers, the health care system and level of crime.

We are currently educating educators — coaches, business leaders, hair stylists, teachers, parents, health care workers, and community members — so they too recognize the signs as well as the insidious scope of this problem within their communities.   To break the cycle of violence we must start early, with school age children and teens, by creating awareness and healthy models of behaviors and relating.
