Youth Community Educators Program (YCEP) // True Man

 

Our YCEP program is a comprehensive training and professional development for high school youth. We hire 8-12 youth annually to to educate the community about dating violence and ways to prevent it.

Our True Man program is in partnership with the Denver Broncos, and is designed to challenge boys and men to become allies in the prevention of domestic and sexual violence through a team framework.
