Applications open for Modelling Respect and Equality program
Expressions of interest are now open for the second round of Modelling Respect and Equality (MoRE), which will run in Melbourne commencing in early March 2019. MoRE was developed by Jesuit Social Services’ The Men’s Project
, which recruits, trains and supports people who frequently interact and work with boys and men to promote positive attitudes, respectful relationships and gender equality.
MoRE is open to members of the community. The Men's Project wants to build the awareness, knowledge, skills and confidence of men and women who interact with boys and men on a frequent basis and in settings where positive attitudes and behaviour can be modelled and promoted.
The key features of each round of this program are:
* Recruitment of role models from a wide range of contexts who frequently engage with boys and men (education, work, sport, community settings)
* 2-Day Intensive Workshop – focused on personal reflection and growth, building awareness and understanding of the issues, developing skills to model and drive change within their own community
* Ongoing support for participants to identify opportunities and activities – utilising a community organising approach to keep participants engaged and support them in their own context. This will include a final half day follow-up workshop to troubleshoot issues and celebrate successes
The attached brochure explains the program in more detail, including instructions on how to apply.
