Boys to Men

The Boys to Men project has helped 411 boys and young men explore ‘positive masculinity’ and improve gender-related behaviours and attitudes.

The project implemented an education and prevention approach, delivered in primary and high schools.  It brought groups of young boys together from a range of  ages covering year 5,6,7 & 8.

Pupils/Students were consulted and informed on the concept of ‘positive masculinity’ and formed insights into how they can contribute to a co-ordinated local solution to gender-inequality and misogyny.

They have taken part in a 6 week programme where they have been 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 have also implemented a peer to peer education social action project to share the knowledge they gained.
