The Men's Project is an eleven-week training that begins in February. The day and time of the meeting will be determined by participant availability.
 
The program is supported by the UConn Women's Center and the Asian American Cultural Center, whose staff serve as advisors and support for this initiative.The goal of the Men’s Project is to train those that identify as men who will then positively influence their peers by challenging social norms that promote gender-based violence; understanding their connection to survivors of gender-based violence; and role modeling effective bystander interventions. The weekly meetings will focus on topics related to gender socialization, masculinities, social justice and gender-based violence.
 
We will select approximately 15- 20 students for this initiative. The purpose of the project is to identify and train individuals who may be seen as having influence with their peers. However, all students are encouraged to apply. We are looking for a diverse group of participants with unique experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds.


Applications are due by December 1st, 2017.
