Katz et al. (2011) – The Social Justice Roots of the Mentors in Violence Prevention Model and Its Application in a High School Setting

Abstract

The social justice roots and theory of the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) model is presented, followed by an empirical study examining the influence of MVP in high school settings. Findings reveal students exposed to the MVP model are more likely to see forms of violence as being wrong and are more likely to take actions to intervene than students not exposed to the program. Findings support the premises on which MVP is founded.
