TOOLKIT: International Men’s Day 2022
We are very proud that this year’s International Men’s Day theme on, The Fylde Coast, will be, ‘Being a Man in 2022’, focussing on what we can celebrate and what we need to change. There will be a fully accessible Toolkit with resources for teachers, youth workers and practitioners to access and work alongside young men to examine ‘What is is to be a man in 2022′.
All activities, worksheets and resources within the Toolkit, are designed by experienced youth workers, young men and young women and include a variety of activities, which also include the lived experience of women and girls. The Toolkit will allow for thought provoking conversations to take place with young men and an opportunity for all men to grow and develop to reach their unique potential.
