EngageMENt (Male Series)
Not all men are part of the problem.
All men can be part of the solution.
Gender-based violence has been perceived as a “women’s issue” for too long.
EngageMENt is our program for boys and men, created to encourage our male allies to participate in conversation and action to end gender-based violence.
It’s long overdue that we engage boys and men as leaders in violence prevention!
Our pilot engageMENt program rolled out in high schools in the fall of 2017-18.
Over one hour a week for 4 weeks, our facilitator guides students through discussion around music and movies, sports culture, online and video games – through a gender lens.
The groups discuss what healthy masculinity means to them, and explore ways that they can help end gender based violence. We promote young men taking a leadership role and taking action.
We all have a part to play.

LeadHERship & EmpowHER (Female Series)
Both of these female series are in the process of being developed to launch in 2021. The goal of the elementary and secondary series is to empower girls to become critical thinkers, barrier breakers, and confident leaders.
Over 4 sessions, students will be guided through media literacy, stereotypes, healthy relationships, and leadership skills – through a gender empowerment lens.
When girls see their potential, and their power within, the world becomes a better place.
