Maine Boys to Men

2023 Goals

Our programs engage a variety of audiences to shift attitudes and actions and create a world in which all individuals, regardless of gender, are treated with respect and live free of fear and violence. Through our nationally unique Reducing Sexism & Violence Program (RSVP®), we will:

  • Teach youth skills to effectively challenge unsafe attitudes and behaviors to limit the occurrence of harassment, dating violence and sexual assault in their schools, on athletic teams and in their wider communities.
  • Provide youth with specific strategies for non-violent conflict de-escalation that they can apply to any situation.
  • Empower youth to recognize and call out the cultural aspects of harmful masculinity that contribute to violence, self-harm and academic decline among boys.
  • By engaging role models of youth, we will:
  • Equip parents and youth-serving adults with tools and strategies to support their children, students, and each other in disrupting potentially harmful situations long before they become violent or do harm.
  • Through our new Training Institute we will:
  • Expand statewide by training a growing collective of youth-serving adults to deliver RSVP® to youth in their own communities. Through our Training Institute, we are working toward reaching tens of thousands of students annually.

We are also looking for high school students who are passionate about gender equity and interested in joining our Youth Advisory Council. “By focusing on positive expressions of masculinity, this program helps boys find positive ways to prevent violence and to cope with violence to which they may have already been exposed.” — Victoria Banyard, Lead Author of Rutgers University study on our Reducing Sexism & Violence Program (RSVP®)
