The Prevention Collaborative is a new global initiative created to serve practitioners and social movements working to prevent violence against women (VAW) in the Global South. We work to strengthen the ability of key actors to deliver cutting edge violence prevention programming informed by research-based evidence, practice-based learning and feminist principles. The Collaborative’s initial focus is on violence against women and children in the family, with an emphasis on intimate partner violence. Today the Collaborative is recruiting its first cadre of 20 to 25 prevention mentors.
We are looking to recruit individuals from the Global South and North with existing knowledge and experience on violence against women and violence prevention programming. Becoming a Prevention Mentor is a competitive process that will yield a number of important benefits.
How to apply
Any qualified individual can apply to become a Prevention Mentor. We are looking to recruit a first group of Prevention Mentors by end April 2018 and will conduct the induction and initial training June 4-10, 2018. Only applicants that are available to attend the June training should apply at this time. After this, we will accept mentor applications during an annual application window.
