Become a Next Gen Men Mentor in Yukon!


What is Next Gen Men?

  • A small-but-mighty Canadian non-profit who works towards one big goal — to change how the world sees, acts, and thinks about masculinity.

  • Next Gen Men has developed a program to help middle school boys challenge the status quo.

  • Next Gen Men’s youth programming is about building youth who are empathetic, accountable and courageous; who are emotionally capable, committed to gender equality and role models for their peers; able to develop supportive friendships, handle crises with resilience and positively affect their communities.

What is Happening in the Yukon?

  • With the support of Women and Gender Equality Canada and the Government of Canada, the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre and Les EssentiElles are launching a three year project to bring a promising practice to the Yukon!!!

  • We are adapting Next Gen Men’s program for boys and non-binary folks aged 13-16 in the Yukon.

  • Mentors will facilitate Boys Groups hosted by schools, community organizations, First Nations, or other groups .

  • Boys groups can be hosted in a variety of formats and spaces: it could be weekly sessions at a community organization or school, a weekend-retreat space, sessions on the land, and more!

Interested in the training, but can’t commit to running a Boys Group?

Due to the demand for learning more about the Next Gen Men program, we are now offering the training to individuals even if they cannot commit to running a Boys Group afterwards.

This means that anyone interested in taking the training (8-10 hours of self-paced on-line work, and a 2 day in-person training in Whitehorse, May 11-12, 2024) can apply.

Our hope is that, all participants will bring the learnings back to their communities and integrate them into their jobs/volunteer roles/community and family roles.
