11 SVI Mentors in Violence Prevention are now fully trained and will be delivering their first sessions to the SI PSE classes over the next couple of weeks.

The MVP Programme makes use of young people within the school to act as peer mentors who deliver MVP sessions to younger peers in the school. The heart of the training consists of role plays which allow students to construct and practice viable options in response to incidents of harassment, abuse or violence before, during or after the incident occurs. Students are able to identify dangerous behaviours as forms of violence and learn that there is not just one way to confront violence and develop valuable skills to build their personal resolve and act when faced with difficult situations.
