Young Men Leading Change

Young Men Leading Change


Young Men Leading Change is a community of BIPOC men ages 17-25 coming together from across Ontario to make our communities stronger and safer. We support each other, explore what it means to be a man in Canada, and learn about preventing male violence towards women, non-binary people, and other men.

Meet the team of Youth Facilitators and Adult Allies that anchor Young Men Leading Change.


an evidence-based approach

Young Men Leading Change is the result of many people coming together to support young men to prevent gender-based violence in our communities. Our Community Report summarizes the results of three years of programming in four Ontario cities.

About the collective

The Young Men Leading Change Collective includes immigrant-serving agencies and organizations working to end violence against women in London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Peterborough and Ottawa. The project is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and led by the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women.
