Imagine a Man - Building positive masculinity with young people
The Imagine a Man training is for anyone wishing to explore and build 'positive masculinity' with young people. Positive masculinity benefits everyone, not just boys and young men, and therefore it is everyone's business.
This online training course accompanies the resource, Imagine a Man - Building positive masculinity with young people. and is all about developing confidence in discussing masculinity. You can go through the sections online and at your own pace. You can also revisit them, even if you have completed the course. Some of the concepts may be quite challenging if you are new to them.
In the online Imagine a Man training, we explore why talking about positive masculinity is important, what constitutes positive masculinity, and what are the core conditions to help develop a healthy, flourishing and optimistic future for all boys and young men.
Calling men ‘toxic’ doesn’t work. We need to reframe the narrative around masculinity to talk up positive behaviour. If we don’t have good role models or places to talk about what manhood means, then our boys and young men are much more likely to go off the rails. Boys and young men need to feel as if they matter in society.
Imagine a Man is an initiative that is all about talking to boys and young men about positive masculinity. The Imagine a Man resource is the result of 2 years of research and consultation with boys and young men about what is important to them.
By undertaking this course, we hope you will join us in building a positive masculinity movement that benefits everyone.
