Coaching Boys Into Men
In partnership with FUTURES Without Violence and with support from the City of Boston, SWB Boston has completed the first round of the Coaching Boys into Men (CBIM) curriculum, a comprehensive violence prevention program for middle school and high school aged boys. CBIM inspires athletic coaches to teach their young athletes that violence never equals strength and that violence against women and girls is wrong.
Natasha sits on the SWB Boston Advisory Board and works as an Assistant Coach, but she recently added another level to her already enthusiastic involvement by running the TCS NYC Marathon with Team SWB!
Building a more inclusive world requires a shared purpose and a collaborative approach. Our partners and supporters enable us to provide programming to youth free-of-cost, while also providing complementary services to youth and families when their needs fall outside of our scope.
