The Training Institute will be proactive – we will balance prevention and intervention strategies, rely heavily on a practice of innovation, and frame our efforts under the belief that a world without violence is attainable.

The Training Institute will bring an interconnected approach forward – we will engage training participants as partners in our efforts, break down silos and encourage an end to working in isolation, and build bridges across disciplines through small group exercises and communities of practice.

The Training Institute will be a catalyst for social change – we will explore how our work to end violence is intrinsically linked to other movements for social justice, support leadership of people impacted by violence and most marginalized in our work, and integrate social justice organizing alongside victim/survivor services techniques as key training elements.
