Turning the Tides of Male Violence in Maine
The next workshop will be held on Friday, March 24. It will meet online from noon to 2:00 p.m. eastern.
We will also offer this workshop on Friday, May 19, online, from from noon to 2:00 p.m. eastern.
Build your understanding of the root causes of male violence and self-harm in this two-hour online introductory workshop. Learn how to identify and interrupt the beliefs and behaviors that can lead to violence, and better understand how Maine Boys to Men is working with young people and youth-serving adults to build safer communities.
This workshop is for anyone who wants to learn more about the programs we facilitate across Maine, and how they help to create environments that promote safety, gender equity, and respect. Together we will consider our own understandings of gender stereotypes; learn how stereotypes can lead to violence; and acquire skills to help prevent violence.
After this workshop, you might
- Decide to bring one of our youth programs to your school or camp;
- Integrate tools learned into your role as a youth-serving adult or parent;
- Bring our Training Institute to your community.
Maine Boys to Men is a recognized leader in changing the culture of boy and adult male violence in Maine and New England. Join us to find out how you can be part of what we believe is the most important work for our world right now.

We also have short in-person presentations that we would love to bring to your community organization, company lunch-and-learn, investment group, or other gathering of interested adults. We have recently presented at Martin’s Point Health Care, Greenbacker Capital, and the Rotary Club of Freeport.
