Young Men Leading Change

Young Men Leading Change brings young newcomer men (15-25 years old), immigrant-serving agencies and violence against women (VAW) agencies together to address gender-based violence in our communities.

Young Men Leading Change connects the strengths of young newcomer men to the expertise of immigrant-serving professionals and VAW workers. Young men participate in the Five MANifest Change Conversations and expand on their leadership skills to develop a series of community projects that increase the safety of women, girls, and LGBTTQ+ people.
