THE STORY:

This project will improve health outcomes by stopping violence before it starts. Leveraging behavioral tools, the program engages young, at-risk adolescent boys, ages 11 to 14 years old, from underserved districts in Barranquilla, Colombia. Through workshops and youth-driven media campaigns, the boys will learn about domestic violence prevention and become advocates for change. Participants will undertake a month-long series of play-based workshops on relevant themes, including power, oppression, the effects of gender expectations, and healthy communication techniques. The project will enlist older adolescent volunteers to help lead the workshops and create positive role models for the boys. The campaigns will be designed by the students with the help of the volunteers, and will be disseminated to each participant's online social circle. If this pilot program is successful, it could be scaled-up regionally in the Atlantic region of Colombia. Hombres Verdaderos was recently featured in Big Ideas News—read more about the project here.
