Despite the clear correlation between traditional notions of masculinity and the epidemic of violence against women, few violence prevention programs target young men. MCSR bridges this striking gap in services, providing young men with opportunities to challenge old models of masculinity and embrace their duty to end menís violence against women. The goal here is nothing less than the creation of a movement Ė the building of young men who have the depth of character to challenge the idea that strength means domination. MCSR provides a safe forum where young men learn to be strong without being violent, to be powerful without subjugating others, to form healthy relationships and create safe communities. This effort has earned MCSR a reputation worldwide as a source of creative and effective approaches to a devastating problem; it has also earned them honors from the National Crime Prevention Council and the Ms. Foundation for Women. Providing young men and boys with new visions of manhood, and young women and girls with respect, safety, and hope: now that is a life-changing vision that you will want to support.
