About this event

Men At Work trains professionals who work with boys and young men to facilitate constructive dialogues with them about safety, empathy and respect – for themselves, for their male peers and for women and girls.

Our mission is to empower – through knowledge, skills and confidence – a widening range of professionals to help boys and young men achieve their potential as positive assets to their peer-groups, their places of education, their communities and, in time, their own partners and families. We are focused on the goal of fostering violence-free relationships, families and communities and on helping to remove obstacles to safe, empathetic and respectful lives – all through constructive, reflective dialogue.

This is an innovative one-day training for professionals and volunteers who work with boys and young men in a range of contexts: Education, Youth Work, Youth Justice, Family Support, Social Work and beyond. Spend the day with a small group (between 6 and 15) of fellow professionals from within your own field and related fields, looking at the ways in which societal values and expectations can cause a range of behavioural and attitudinal issues with boys and young men which are not in their interests - or in the interests of those of of the women and girls in their lives.

The training covers the underlying themes and practical mechanics of delivering a programme framework called '10 Dialogues' which has been rolled out since summer 2021 to positive feedback: https://menatworkcic.org/feedback-3/
