PAVE Welcomes SCOPE as a New Affiliate

SCOPE Logo PAVE would like to give a warm welcome to SCOPE: School and College Organization for Prevention Organizers to PAVE’s Affiliate program.

SCOPE is the professional home for those whose mission is to empower primary prevention within schools, colleges and communities. SCOPE an independent, not-for-profit membership association for prevention educators and professionals. SCOPE embraces an ecological, inclusive, holistic, feminist, public health, evidence-based and multi-disciplinary vision of prevention.

To effectively promote the aims of the prevention community, SCOPE members deeply examine the causes of violence, health and safety risks within society — including hate, intolerance, apathy, gender bias, racism, homophobia, stigmatization of mental health, objectification of the human body, ignorance, predation and discrimination — to foster effective, interconnected, strategic prevention.

If you’re organization falls within this SCOPE, we highly suggest you attend SCOPE’s 2012 Annual Conference, October 18-20 in Orland, Florida or check out their Spring Webinar Series.
