Our Programs

Institute SSJ programs address issues of diversity and inclusion, gender violence prevention, critical decision making skills for student-athletes, and leadership styles for coaches and administrators. Our programs have won the Peter F. Drucker Foundation Award as the nation’s most innovative non-profit program and recognized by the Bill Clinton Administration as a “model for violence prevention.” Unlike traditional workshops, our programs are interactive in nature; engaging the audience in scenarios, case studies, role plays, videos, and many more interactive activities.
