Weekly Drop-In Group
Each Monday afternoon at GLIDE, a group of men meet with one primary goal: to acknowledge their own violence and help each other learn a new way of relating.
Run by men and designed for men, Men In Progress is a Violence Intervention Program dedicated to working with all men in straightforward and practical ways on issues that affect their lives. The goal is to support men to gain understanding and strength in their relationships with themselves, partners, family, friends and community.
In weekly group, men learn to:
- Take responsibility for their actions
- Learn how to avoid and manage conflict
- Have positive relationships
- Create safety strategies in their home
- Deal with personal issues
- Live beyond survival

Staff Facilitator Training Program
At GLIDE, we believe that the American workplace is full of violence, much of it in the forms of coercion through the control of resources, verbal abuse, and emotional manipulation.
As part of our own commitment to Dr. King's concept of a Beloved Community, some of our staff train as facilitators, not only to lead the weekly Men In Progress groups, but to work with staff and fundamentally transform the life of the organization.
