About Quentin Walcott:
At CONNECT, Quentin is the Director of the CONNECT Training Institute (CTI) and Community Empowerment programs. Quentin also spearheads the Male Anti-Violence initiatives, where he creatively develops programming training, educational programs centered on males to cultivate participation and leadership by men in the anti-violence movement. Quentin developed a curriculum and training for young adult males that examined violence against women and girls at V-Day’s New York Stop the Violence Festival as part of the newly created V-Day Men’s Committee. Quentin and his team of anti-violence educators have launched city-wide workshops for men and boys looking to transform them from bystanders to allies to activists against family and gender violence.
Quentin was trained, supervised and mentored by Dr. John Aponte, and started facilitating Batterer’s Intervention groups throughout New York City over 14 years ago. Quentin is currently the Co-Chair of the Committee on Working with Abusive Partners Batterers.
Quentin has previously worked with the Educational Alliance Early Head Start, piloting their Father Involvement Program and Southern Queens Park Association’s Families In Need Preventive Services Program as a teen group facilitator and Domestic Violence Specialist. Quentin has a wealth of experience facilitating groups for young and adult males on masculinity, manhood development, fathering, batterer’s intervention and accountability. Quentin combines his experience working with social agencies and several years of human rights work bringing a new and fresh perspective to the work to end family violence.
CONNECT is dedicated to preventing interpersonal violence and promoting gender justice. By building partnerships with individuals and communities, we strive to help change the beliefs, behaviors and institutions that perpetuate violence. Through legal empowerment, grassroots mobilization and transformative education, we seek to create safe families and peaceful communities.
Berkeley College, established in 1931 as a business school, has grown since that time to a thriving multi-campus institution offering degree programs in a variety of disciplines. With seven locations in New York and New Jersey, Berkeley today offers programs that balance traditional academic study with professional training and hands-on experience.
