Island Sexual Health is looking for youth that identify as male to participate in an upcoming pilot program called “Man”-Made. This program addresses issues related to stereotypical masculinity that contributes to sexual exploitation, sexualized violence and barriers to positive identity building through social learning, media, and popular culture. The program includes skills-based activities and discussion based on participatory style instruction providing those who identify as male with the ability and opportunity to explore gender construction in relation to their own identity and experiences.
Participation in a one of our pilot projects will be provided to schools free of charge. We offer flexible scheduling and programming which can take place in a classroom setting or as an extra curricular group activity for students. Pilot projects could be facilitated as a one or two -day workshop, or over multiple module based sessions. We are looking to male-identified participants ages 14 to 17 to provide feedback on the program as well as determine what issues are important to youth in our community.
If this is something your students would be interested in participating in, or if you would like more information please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your consideration,
Nick Sandor (Educator at Island Sexual Health)
