MBF Athlete Safety Matters™is a comprehensive, evidence-informed curriculum that educates and empowers youth athletes with information and strategies to prevent, recognize, and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, all types of abuse, and digital dangers.
The program is presented to youth athletes clustered by grade level (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12), in two comprehensive lessons that are approximately 40-45 minutes each – or it can be presented in four shorter lessons.
