About the organisation
Jesuit Social Services is a social change organisation working to build a just society where all people can live to their full potential.
Since 1977, we’ve provided services in some of the most disadvantaged in our community.
We place a high priority on advocacy and are a leader in policy development and research.
About the program
The Men’s Project is an initiative of Jesuit Social Services launched in 2017. It provides leadership on the reduction of violence and other harmful behaviours prevalent among boys and men, and builds approaches to improve their wellbeing and keep families and communities safe.
Our vision is for engaged men, respectful relationships and safe communities.
We aim to achieve this by:
- research to better understand the attitudes and behaviours of boys and young men;
- promoting positive change related to gender norms and what it means to be a man in the 21st century; and
- designing, piloting and evaluating interventions that intervene earlier to fill crucial gaps in the services system including related to adolescent family violence and child sexual abuse prevention
The Men’s Project builds on Jesuit Social Services’ over 40-year engagement with boys and men in trouble.
