A participatory action research project in the City of Gosnells that engaged CaLD men and boys in primary prevention work.
The project consisted of three tiers:
Tier 1 – 12 session weekly program with male leaders in the African Community
Tier 2 – Weekly after school program with 2 groups of young men (11-13 and 14-16 years of ages) for 12 months, discussing health relationships, leaderships, masculinity, manhood and attitudes towards women.
Tier 3 – series of workshops within schools discussing, healthy relationships, gender and attitudes towards women.
Following the initial project period in April 2018 – April 2019, further small extensions of funding have provided the opportunity to collate and share findings, mentor young people and deliver a short series of workshops with girls and boys from the Afghan community during the summer holidays in January 2021.
Internal program evaluation has been undertaken (see promising practice post)
Currently seeking to engage an evaluator to review program documents and content prior to completion of Phase 3, 31 March 2021.
