Mending/YMLC: Male Allyship

MENding and Young Men Leading Change:

MENding/YMLC aims to engage men and boys in ending gender-based violence and to create safe and non-judgmental settings to support boys and men. The program approaches ideas of gender expression and how violence factors into how society constructs masculinity – then attempts to break down those rigid ideas.

As ‘train the trainer’ workshop series, men who participate in the training are invited to lead and/or co-host community conversations about gender violence. The workshop helps provide learning and language to men who want to participate in their community in a positive way, while also building transferable skills.
