CNV is also active in various violence prevention and community education and engagement activities, including our award-winning program “Solving the Jigsaw”, widely known for its work with school communities to eliminate bullying, harassment and violence and to build a culture of well-being through equipping young students with positive life skills and constructive attitudes.

CNV is also the lead agency for the regional Integrated Family Violence Consortium that is funded to deliver the full suite of services for women and children experiencing family violence, and programs for men who use violence towards family members.
