RAISING NEXT GEN MEN
Resisting Toxic Masculinity
In this course, we will dive into the fascinating world of masculinity and explore how boys and men learn, adapt, and resist cultural norms that define what it means to be a man. Throughout our journey, we will focus on building a foundational understanding of key concepts surrounding culture and gender, while inviting you to think critically about your own experiences with masculinity. We'll examine how relationships impact boys' beliefs around gender and their self-perception as men, and we'll look at the complex relationship between masculinity and violence. With courage and curiosity, we'll explore the actions we can take to empower boys to stand up to the status quo in their lives and resist toxic masculinity. And finally, we'll offer practical tips and next steps while exploring the intersections within this work. By the end of this course, you'll have a deeper insight into the world of masculinity and the tools to create a more inclusive and equitable society.
