Boys to Men

The Boys to Men project will help boys and young men explore ‘positive masculinity’ and improve gender-related behaviours and attitudes in primary and secondary schools.

The project will implement an education and prevention approach which will bring groups of young boys together from a range of  ages covering year 5,6,7 & 8 they will be consulted and informed on the concept of ‘positive masculinity’ and form insights into how they can contribute to a coordinated local solution to gender-inequality and misogyny.

They will take part in a 6 week programme where they will be educated on the importance of ‘positive masculinity’ covering:

  • Good male role models and attributes
  • Healthy relationships
  • How to control your emotions, feelings and attitude

During the 6 week programme they will also implement a peer to peer education social action project to share the knowledge they have gained.
