MVP utilizes unique bystander approach to prevention and education. MVP views all participants as potential bystanders who can be empowered to confront abusive incidents involving peers. Through conversation, we provide concrete tools for confronting, interrupting and preventing this violence, because the more options a person has available to them, the more likely they are to intervene in the face of violence.
