Please note that Saturday, Feb. 9th's training has been shortened. Training is now set for Friday, 1-5pm and Saturday, 9am-2pm. Additionally, MCSR Executive Director Neil Irvin plans to welcome participants at Friday's training. Please RSVP to Lori Hardesty at email@example.com.
This spring, the non-profit organization Men Can Stop Rape (MCSR), Inc. seeks 4-6 male UMBC students to serve as Men Of Strength (MOST) Club Facilitators to work with young men regarding "attitudes and awareness about bullying and sexual harassment, healthy relationships, and masculinity." MCSR is working with 2-3 sites in East Baltimore,which includes the Carmelo Anthony Rec Center. The hope is to recruit two males to co-facilitate these sessions. Before the holiday break, MCSR hosted an Info Session to share more about this program.
In order to become a facilitator, you must complete a 1½ day training, and are expected to implement the curriculum each week (@ 2-3 hours/week to include the time for travel). Sessions would take place this spring after school and would be during the week. MOST facilitators would have the ability to be enrolled in the 096 Community Service & Learning practicum through the Shriver Center, a zero-credit transcript notation for participating in this service-learning opportunity.
Next Friday, 2/8 (1-5pm) and Saturday, 2/9 (9am-4pm), Rhett Walker, MCSR Campus Training Coordinator, and his colleague Jason Page, will lead the training sessions. RSVP to Lori Hardesty, Assistant Director, Service-Learning, K-16 Partnerships at firstname.lastname@example.org. After you RSVP, you will receive confirmation on location, any preparation needed for the training, etc.
