Men of Strength

One of the promising programs in the field of sexual violence prevention is the Men of Strength Club, developed by an organization in DC called Men Can Stop Rape. The goal is to work with young men to reduce first-time perpetration of rape.

CRCC started its first Men of Strength Club in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cleveland in the fall of 2008. Since then, we’ve facilitated 4 more clubs at various B&GC sites. This fall we’re looking to add even more clubs in Cleveland and we’re looking for men who can help.

Looking for Male Mentors!
