Young Men’s Work: Stopping Violence and Building Community
By The Oakland Men’s Project; Allan Creighton and Paul Kivel. Published by Hazelden
Young Men’s Work: Stopping Violence and Building Community is a curriculum for young men aged 14-19, designed to teach alternatives to violence and to celebrate and enhance their strength, experience, creativity and intelligence. Its purpose is to reinforce alternatives to destructive behavior and enable young men to
- support each other’s success
- become stronger allies to their peers
- join the ongoing struggles for greater equality and social justice
Background of the Curriculum
The material grows out of the work of the Oakland Men’s Project (OMP), which was begun in 1979 to address male violence. OMP was shaped by the voices of women working as advocates to prevent domestic and sexual violence and child sexual assault. While providing services to women, these advocates were also demanding a community response to male violence. As a result, OMP began this program for young men in their teens.
