Program H: Working with Young Men

Source
Promundo

This manual is a translation of the Project H series from the Spanish and Portuguese original versions developed by Promundo. The activities included here were designed for and tested in the Latin American (and in one site in the Caribbean) context. In addition, background information and research cited is mostly from Latin America.

The five sections included in this volume were developed for health educators, teachers and/ or other professionals or volunteers who work with, or want to work with, young men between 15 and 24 years old, which corresponds to the “youth” age group, as defined by WHO. The activities have been tested and developed for working with young men in this age group and in various places and settings. The five sections included in this volume are:

  • Sexuality and Reproductive Health
  • Fatherhood and Caregiving
  • From Violence to Peaceful Coexistence
  • Reasons and Emotions
  • Preventing and Living with HIV/AIDS

Each section contains a series of activities, lasting from 45 minutes to 2 hours, planned for use in groups of young men, and which with some adaptations can be used with mixed-sex groups.
