    Attorney General Maura Healey recently announced that Holyoke High School was selected
    to participate in the first phase of her office’s new anti-violence partnership with the New England Patriots.
    There are 98 schools from six regions across the commonwealth that will be participating in this initiative that is
    being funded by a $500,000 gift from the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and $150,000 from
    Healey’s office.
    Game Change: The Patriots Anti-Violence Partnership will train two adult representatives from each school at
    six regional trainings across Massachusetts. According to a press release from Attorney General Maura
    Healey’s Office, “The trainings will be conducted by Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), a nationwide
    leader in addressing violence prevention. Run by the Center for Sport in Society at Northeastern University,
    MVP uses a sports-themed curriculum and employs collegiate athletes and former professional athletes as
    trainers. The program will also include online support tools for schools and an evaluation component to
    determine the effectiveness of the program in changing attitudes and behaviors.”
    Executive Director of the Center for the Study of Sport in Society Dan Lebowitz explained in a recent statement
    that the purpose of the initiative is “to empower young people, teachers and coaches with the skills and tools
    they need to promote healthy relationships and to recognize and prevent teen dating violence in their schools
    and communities.”
    Holyoke Public Schools Athletic Director Melanie Martin stated, “Holyoke High School applied for Game
    Change as a part of a partnership with Womanshelter/Companeras. This is a tremendous opportunity for our
    staff and students. We are thrilled to be chosen to participate in the first phase and would welcome the chance
    to be one of the 30 high schools chosen to participate in the second phase of the initiative that will begin in the
    fall.”
    The second phase will provide more extensive trainings to 30 high schools in partnership with local domestic
    violence and sexual assault advocacy organizations. According to Healey’s announcement, “The organizations
    will help train school staff and parents and work with school administrators on policies and services for students
    and families dealing with violence. Students from each of those schools will also be trained to become peer
    leaders so they can teach younger students about healthy relationships and bystander intervention.”
