Youth Led Workshop for Maine High School Students

Location

Bowdoin College, Cram Alumni Barn, 83 Federal Street, Brunswick, Maine

Presented by Maine Boys to Men's Youth Advisory Council.
Open to ALL Maine High School students. Space is limited, register here today!

Saturday April 28th, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Join us for this fast paced, fun and interactive day-long workshop facilitated by members of Maine Boys to Men's Youth Advisory Council. 

Through peer led activities, students will engage in and discuss important topics while discovering new information about themselves and their peers. Topics include: Gender as a social construct, gender pressures and stereotypes, healthy communication, relationships, consent, technology respect, sexual harassment and assault, up-stander intervention, leadership and action.

This unique opportunity explores ways that societal pressures and narrow definitions of gender can lead to a culture of self-harm, disrespect, harassment and violence. Participants will leave better prepared to navigate these pressures and help make their school communities safer and more inclusive. This workshop empowers students to play a central role in confronting sexist attitudes and behaviors that are limiting and harmful to boys, girls, men and women.

"This is an opportunity to talk about very important topics that don't get talked about or addressed anywhere else." -RSVP High School Participant
