A Call to Men has worked with the U.S. military for over 12 years — offering trainings at West Point, Annapolis, and numerous domestic and international military installations. We work with service members to deepen their awareness and understanding of domestic violence and sexual assault, and to provide resources to help them take an active role in violence prevention.
Our training program consists of a presentation and a discussion exploring the prevalence of domestic violence and sexual assault within our society. Participants will examine:
- The impact of domestic violence and sexual assault on victims, families, perpetrators, and communities.
- Strategies to build and maintain healthy relationships.
- The role that all service members and leaders can play in domestic and sexual violence prevention, and strategies to create safer communities.
- The influence and platform that the military has in our society to contribute to domestic violence and sexual assault prevention efforts.
A Call to Men’s training team has military backgrounds, extensive military training experience, and a deep understanding of military culture. We have trained at military installations around the world — including Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, USS Green Bay, Naval Base San Diego, MacDill Air Force Base, New Jersey National Guard at Fort Dix, Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, and more.
