Male Athletes Against Violence (MAAV)- Male Athletes Against Violence is an effort to involve men in the discussion of violence in order to challenge the social norms and institutions that actively or implicitly condone and promote violence.
Athletes for Sexual Responsibility- The University of Maine is addressing these serious national problems through a unique peer education program that shows athletes as more than role models for physical strength, agility and stamina, but also as role models for appropriate social and sexual behavior.
