What does it mean to ‘be a man’ today?
How do we define masculinity? How can we end violence against women and girls? What does a healthy relationship look like? How do we talk about mental health with our friends and family?
At Next Gen Men, these are the questions we’re trying to answer.
Our nonprofit, after-school program for boys aged 12-14 years old disrupts the prevalent ideas and misconceptions about what it means to ‘be a man’ today. We move beyond the stereotypes and empower boys to be men who make a positive impact on their communities.
We promote healthy masculinities and gender equality through our program pillars of Self, Health, and Other. We’re on a journey of lifelong learning, so that we can better support the next generation of boys and men.
We equip boys with the confidence, support, and tools they need to contribute to their communities in a positive way. In our programs, boys learn about the many ways to be a man and how they can become the best versions of themselves.
