Men of Integrity
Men of Integrity is an Outreach Program created by Every Woman Foundation which aims to introduce young men and men to a new way of thinking which is progressive, empowering and responsive. We aim to enable participants to feel secure in their manhood without achieving that feeling of security through the dis-empowerment of others. The program will help participants to examine how they see themselves and the roles they play in society by providing individual and group workshop situations in which to do so. We aim to expose participants to a new way of thinking, and to provide them with the skills and tools to implement this new way of thinking into their lives in order to live in a more positive way for themselves and for those around them. *NB This program is life-coaching program which is not to be taken in replacement of professional psychiatric or other treatment for violent behavioral patterns.

- Ages 10-13
- Ages 14-18
