Men Can Stop Rape's Single-Sex Program Referenced as a Solution in Preventing Dating Violence
Popular New York Times parenting blog, Motherlode asks, “Are Single-Sex Groups Better for Preventing Dating Violence?” The blog points Men Can Stop Rape‘s, weekly leadership curriculum for boys, called Men of Strength clubs (MOST) as a potential solution in preventing dating violence. Although the 12-year-old program initially focused on high schoolboys, it now has a curriculum for middle schoolers: 40 clubs in eight states.
MOST programs are only for boys. While older teenagers discuss domestic and sexual violence, the younger ones focus on healthy relationships and anti-bullying interventions. Neil Irvin, the executive director of Men Can Stop Rape (and Pilot Movement Maker) started this program because he “felt boys needed their own safe environment to explore these issues”.
