Materials/Curriculum/Campaign Used/Adapted

Men of Strength Clubs – The Men of Strength (MOST) Club has provided young men in Washington, DC and California high schools and colleges with a safe and supportive haven to connect with male peers while exploring masculinity and male strength.
MOST CLUB AIMS TO:
  • Provide young men with a safe, supportive space in which to connect with male peers through exploring notions of masculinity and male strength.
  • Promote an understanding of ways that traditional masculinity contributes to sexual assault and other forms of men's violence, perpetuates gender inequity, and compromises the health of men and women.
  • Expose young men to healthier, nonviolent models/visions of manhood.
  • Build young men's capacity to become peer leaders and allies with women in promoting gender equality and preventing men's violence.
