FUTURES has taken the nationwide success of Coaching Boys Into Men and expanded it into the international space, hosting trainings, supporting program adaptations, and partnering with international organizations to expand the reach of CBIM across the globe. Since 2006, FUTURES partnered with UNICEF, FIFA (Fèdèration Internationale de Football Associacion), Nike, The International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), World Vision and Soccer Without Borders, to develop CBIM program adaptations, and implement and evaluate CBIM in various communities around the world. Over the years, CBIM has reached countries including Australia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Angola, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Japan, Mexico, Norway, and Trinidad.
Coaching Boys Into Men in association with Athletes As Leaders has been noted in the World Health Organization’s INSPIRE Handbook: Seven Strategies for Ending Violence Against Children as a promising approach that changes adherence to restrictive and harmful gender and social norms.
