Be Certified to Teach the LIVE RESPECT Curriculum

A CALL TO MEN has launched a free online certification training for its LIVERESPECT Coaching Healthy, Respectful Manhood Curriculum.  The on-demand webinar series takes participants through A CALL TO MEN’s signature training on its curriculum for middle-school and high-school boys.  Typically conducted in person over the course of a school day, the online certification training can be completed in three sessions that average 35 minutes each at the convenience of the participant and includes a downloadable certificate upon completion.    

“Through the tremendous support of Harry’s, A CALL TO MEN is able to offer this resource to schools and youth programs at no cost to their organizations,” said Ted Bunch, co-founder of A CALL TO MEN and co-author of the curriculum and certification training.  “Harry’s commitment to promoting healthy manhood will help shatter gender stereotypes, prevent violence and discrimination, and allow boys to live healthier, happier lives.”

“We're a men's brand, so we think a lot about how we can help guys - through our products, and also more broadly in the world. To that end, we're incredibly excited to partner with A CALL TO MEN to make their LIVERESPECT curriculum widely available to teachers, coaches, mentors and other figures in young men's lives. We're honored to play a small part in giving the next generation of men the tools and training they need to live happy and healthy lives, while building stronger and more respectful communities in the process,” said Andy Katz-Mayfield, Co-Founder and CEO at Harry’s.  

The LIVERESPECT Curriculum promotes healthy, respectful manhood and healthy relationships; decreases language and actions that degrade women, girls and other marginalized groups; challenges harmful cultural and social norms; and decreases instances of dating violence, sexual assault, bullying and homophobia.  One of the most compelling data points that came from the curriculum pilot is around consent.  Pre-curriculum, only 19 percent of boys report knowing what consent means. Post-curriculum, that number increases to 75 percent.  The full pilot report can be downloaded HERE.

Both the curriculum and the online certification training were written by A CALL TO MEN in conjunction with Scholastic, and are based on A CALL TO MEN’s 20+ years of experience working with and training men and boys, from the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer and National Hockey League, to the United States Military, the Department of Justice, the United Nations, and high schools, colleges and universities across the nation.   The curriculum is also free and available for download HERE.

#IWILLSPEAKUP

Joyful Heart Foundation (JHF), in conjunction with A CALL TO MEN has released a new PSA campaign that highlights the importance of men's role in speaking up and supporting survivors of sexual assault, abuse and harassment. The spots were co-produced by Viacom Velocity; directed by JHF's founder and president, Mariska Hargitay; developed by creative director Rachel Howald from Invisible Man; edited by Jean Taylor at Wax; and will be distributed nationally by Boom Broadcast and Viacom.

What is the Man Box?

A CALL TO MEN uses the Man Box to illustrate the collective socialization of men. The Man Box identifies the limitations on what a man is supposed to be and what he believes. These expectations are taught to men – sometimes unconsciously – and reinforced by society. In the man box, men are supposed to be:

  • Powerful and dominating
  • Fearless and in control
  • Strong and emotionless
  • Successful – in the boardroom, the bedroom and on the ball field

In the Man Box, women are objects, the property of men, and of less value than men. The teachings of the Man Box allow violence against women, girls and other marginalized groups to persist.

The Many Faces of Manhood - A CALL TO MEN's 2017 National Conference

A CALL TO MEN’s 2017 National Conference will explore the Many Faces of
Manhood. Through engaging keynotes, roundtable discussions and interactive
breakout sessions, attendees will learn how the collective socialization of men creates a
fertile ground for violence and discrimination against women and girls. Those same
notions of sexism and inequality hold men hostage to the rigid norms of manhood.

A CALL TO MEN will convene influential and passionate voices to examine healthy,
respectful manhood in athletics, education, incarceration, fatherhood, faith
communities and around issues of gender. As men are empowered to be their authentic
selves, we will collectively create a world where all men and boys are loving and
respectful and all women and girls are valued and safe.

The Many Faces of Manhood is generously sponsored by:
