Cultivating healthy
masculinity through
education, support
& wellness

going beyond boys will be boys

We often tell men and boys not to be ‘that guy’, but fail to have a conversation that supports healthy and fulfilling alternatives to the status quo. Man Made aims to do just that, by facilitating interactive and supportive workshops with male-identified youth and any other community members interested in having meaningful conversations about masculinity. Our programming explores healthy expressions of masculinity and developing strategies to help end both relationship and gender-based violence.

Emotional Wellness

Our workshops on masculinity include an exploration of emotional wellness with the goal of challenging stigma related to mental health and providing strategies to build empathy, emotional literacy, and mental health support.

Community Building

Our work in community creates the capacity to have these tough conversations about masculinity with peers. The goal is to ensure you have the skills to carry on these conversations in thoughtful and meaningful ways.

Healthy Relationships

Our workshops go beyond "yes means yes" and support community members by introducing methods to practice consent in all our relationships including ways to navigate rejection and those seemingly "grey areas" of consent.

Media Analysis & Self Image

Our workshops help participants develop critical thinking skills. In the age of information overload, it is important to discuss how the messages we hear impact our relationships and self-image.

Identity Mapping

In our workshops, we reflect on the questions: what is masculinity and why does it matter? The goal is to foster both accountability and affirmation as we navigate understanding our own gender identity.

  • “Calling gender violence a women’s issue is part of the problem. It gives a lot of men an excuse not to pay attention.”

  • "I call myself a feminist. Isn't that what you call someone who fights for women's rights?"

  • “I’m not ashamed to dress “like a woman” because I don’t think it’s shameful to be a woman.”
