Masculinity Initiative

Improving outcomes for young men and masculine-identified youth in Tucson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This fall, we did a multi-day deep dive with community partners in order to collectively explore the challenges facing teenage boys in Tucson, AZ. The goal of this forum was to explore the potential of forming a networked collective impact approach to substantially transforming the conditions for young men in Southern Arizona.

This event was built around the 2020 Report on Intergenerational Healthy Masculinity Initiative: Community Readiness Assessment, conducted by the Southwest Institute for Research on Women. Click here to read that report.

This comprehensive exploration of the challenges facing masculine-identified youth featured an inspirational launch with Ashanti Branch, followed by two days of panels in which we took on the key barriers and opportunities to building an exceptional culture in Tucson, Arizona in which teenage boys are safe to ask for help, express themselves, and be whole. 

For those that missed any or all parts of the forum, the recordings are provided at the bottom of this page.
