ENDGBV's Policy and Training Teams lead our Office's training, prevention, and policy work with the goal of enhancing City agency and community-based organization (CBO) responses to domestic and gender-based violence and identifying key areas for policy change and development.
Our Policy Team conducts policy research, develops policy recommendations, and develops policies and programs to address systemic gaps for survivors of DV/GBV. The Policy Team also supports all the Office's equity and inclusion work, housing the Language Access Coordinator, Disability Service Facilitator, and LGBTQ Liaison.
Our Training Team provides tailored trainings to City agencies and CBOs on topics across the spectrum of GBV, as well as providing technical assistance in the review and development of their policies and protocols. To connect with us with questions, or about collaborating around in-person or virtual training, please contact us.
We invite you to complete this Introductory Learning Module on the Impact of Domestic Violence and share it with your colleagues, family, and friends.
ENDGBV believes in the importance of centering young people in our mission to end domestic and gender-based violence. An important part of our policy and training work is providing youth serving organizations with training and technical assistance, ensuring the inclusion of youth voices and perspectives in the development and implementation of domestic and gender-based violence programming, and advocating for investments in youth prevention and education. We know that supporting healthy relationship development is a critical violence prevention strategy that promotes mental health and reduces risk behavior in children and young people.
The ABCs of Healthy Relationships: In October 2021, ENDGBV and the DOE launched "The ABCs of Healthy Relationships" interactive web-based toolkits to help elementary school students develop healthy relationships with their friends and classmates as building blocks for healthier relationships.
