Coaches as Partners – run by The Sexual Violence Prevention Collaborative of Fairfield County* – works to engage coaches, athletic directors, and influencers within the sports community in the prevention of sexual violence. Our goal is to bring awareness and education about the critical role athletic leaders play in promoting an inclusive and respectful sports culture.
Our game plan is to build partnerships with coaches, who spend more time with students than many teachers or family members. Our premise is that coaches wield a significant amount of influence on their athletes and can shift the paradigm by modeling pro-social behaviors and demonstrating what it means to be an ally in ending sexual violence through knowledge of the issues and expansive intervention tools.
