Community Trainings

We believe that HOPE motivates people
to act, and action creates social change.

Our expert trainers facilitate meaningful discussions with adults about their critical role in preventing violence and building communities centered in respect and inclusion. In addition we provide training on best practices in trauma informed interventions for survivors and community partner resources.

CFJ’s prevention team also provides consultation, and technical assistance to foster optimal violence prevention practices, driving positive impact on individuals, relationships, organizations and communities, thereby facilitating enduring societal transformation.

Training and consultation fees are negotiable including sliding scale. We will work with all of our partners even if you have a limited training budget. We believe it is critical to have our education and training accessible to everyone. All topics can be tailored to specific audiences. Training length varies from one hour to full-day training sessions.
