Men at Work

Our modular resource – Men At Work: a programme of support and challenge for boys, young men and those working with them is a resource for those who work with boys and young men in schools, colleges, youth services, Youth Justice, fostering, sports, mentoring – almost anywhere.

Men at Work can be delivered – using the discretion of facilitators in your setting who have been trained* by Men at Work C.I.C. – with boys and young men aged 13+ (differentiation and discretion can be applied to make it bespoke for the age range / context). 

Being modular, Men at Work can be followed as a sequential multi-week programme and / or used as single modules in an ad hoc way to support mentoring sessions, interventions, #RSE and #PSHE classes.  

Modules:

Respect: Who do we respect? Why? Do we confuse respect and fear?

The ‘Man Rules’: The do’s and don’ts of socially-constructed masculinities. Pressures and privileges, limits and license, experiences and impacts

Respect & Disrespect In Relationships: What they look like, what they don’t look like.

Keeping Ourselves Safe: Thinking about risk-taking, peer-pressures, face-to-face and online

Help!: Asking for help is a good thing! Knowing when, how and where to ask

Helping Others Stay Safe: What we can do to reduce risk of harm to others – including awareness of our beliefs, values and behaviours

Control: Thinking clearly about what we need to control vs what we might like to control – and how seeking control over other people is not healthy

People, Not Objects: an exploration of Objectification – how it works and the harm it does

Crossing the Line: Sexual Harassment & Assault – Prevalence, forms, dynamics and harms, myths & realities

Stepping In: An exploration of Bystander Intervention – why and how?

Future Me: Imagining ourselves in 2 / 5 / 10 Years’ time, reflecting on the steps to those goals. What needs to be learned / done? What needs to be avoided?

Breaking the Cycle: Why and how?
