Adults are pillars of influence and support in the lives of youth.
Our workshop for all youth-serving adults, including educators and coaches, is aimed at ensuring an inclusive and violence-free school culture for all students and athletes. Since 2019, these workshops have received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
Youth-serving adults are crucial pillars of influence and support in the lives of students, particularly for developing identity, supporting self-esteem, and navigating peer relationships. This fast-paced, activity-based, and discussion-centered workshop will give participants both a greater understanding of the societal messages facing boys and men and an introduction to the tools needed to create inclusive environments in classrooms, on athletic teams, or wherever they work with youth.
Workshops will consist of four content areas.
- Building Connections: Gender as a Social Construct
- Building Understanding: Harmful Gender Stereotypes
- Building Safety: Boundaries and Agreements
- Building Community: Upstander Intervention
Let us bring this workshop to your school, camp, enrichment program, community group, parent-teacher organization, or other gathering of interested youth-serving adults. Contact us to tell us you are interested. We have recently presented this program at Brunswick High School, Portland Public Schools, The Telling Room, Yarmouth High School, Greely PTO, and Kieve Wavus Education.
