Mentors in Violence Prevention
The Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) project is an exciting peer-led leadership and bystander programme. MVP trains year 10 and/or year 11 students as Mentors and equips them with the confidence, knowledge and skills to identify and speak out against bullying, abusive behaviour and violence. It aims to tackle the beliefs, attitudes and culture which can give the message that some violence is acceptable. Ultimately MVP promotes the healthy social norms and culture which is known to prevent violence.
The VRN is initially supporting the implementation of MVP in secondary schools but the programme is transferable to many other settings including further and higher education, youth groups, sport clubs and the workplace.
MVP links into and can be used as part of the schools PHSE programme.
Please refer to the briefing sheet below for further details on the MVP project.
