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.
