MANHOOD 101 PROGRAM
1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. [ncadv.org]
Our young men need us just as much as our young women do. While the majority of intimate partner violence stories covered by the media are about male perpetrators and female victims, that’s only part of the story. Men can be victims of abuse, too. And they also face unique challenges when it comes to dealing with relationships and feelings.
That’s why young males need their own distinctive tools and information to make smart relationship decisions, as well as a safe environment where they can openly talk about their own experiences and ask questions without judgement.
Who: Males, aged 16-24
What: Lectures and workshops that provide outreach, education and empowerment to young men in order to help prevent intimate partner violence, including:
- Regular workshops throughout the year at metro Atlanta and other Georgia high schools and colleges
- Special events to promote education about intimate partner violence among young people during domestic violence month
- Annual young men’s retreat
Where: High schools, colleges and social and civic organizations
