Martha’s House Domestic Violence Shelter and the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (FCADV) teamed up to develop the Chobee Courage Project and the Your Courage Project curriculum. The purpose of these programs were to encourage boys that were mentored to take a stand against violence against women and girls through non-violent bystander intervention.
