Campus Leadership Program

Since 1998, Futures Without Violence has hosted interns in varying fields: medical, legal, public health and social work. Working with staff members at our offices, interns have benefited from the mentorship of staff while gaining knowledge of strategies to prevent violence against women and children.

In May, 2014 we brought our inaugural Campus Leaders Fellowship program (2013-2014) to a close. This program sought to spur creative, student-led action to change university policy, enhance curriculum, raise awareness and shift campus culture around dating violence, domestic violence and the connection to sexual assault, and reproductive coercion.

In preparation for our second cohort, we are seeking graduate-level student applicants from diverse fields including medicine, nursing, public health, social work, psychology, public policy, health care administration, and other health care related concentrations. An in-person training in San Francisco at the end of July, 2014 will mark the official beginning of the program year, followed by organizing work to prevent gender based violence on individual college campuses throughout the academic year.
