Action Team 2
Training & Mentoring
Action Team 2 is dedicated to using educational initiatives to end violence. This team started around developing undergraduate curriculums and has expanded into graduate curriculums as well. In addition, many other types of educational initiatives have been started. At this time, our most active subcommittee includes the Child and Adult Advocacy Studies Committee, the Alternative Training Models Committee/ACESCONNECTION, Website Committee, Religious/Spiritual Initiatives, and Spreading National Plan.
Individuals who join the team can participate at the level their schedules allow. Some individuals periodically attend the phone conference calls that happen bi-monthly and share their knowledge. Some come in person to the Violence Think Tank that occurs once a year and actively work on committee assignments between conference calls. Our Action Team is investigating the possibility of regional meetings between people within given geographical areas to meet three times a year to complete work for NPEIV focused on one selected goal each.
