Under the guidance of MCSR's Director of Youth Development, WISE facilitators will contribute to the sustainability and growth of Men Can Stop Rape’s youth development programming.

Direct service through youth development programs are the cornerstone of MCSR's work. Since 2000, the Men of Strength (MOST) Club – the premiere primary prevention program for male youth in the country – has provided middle and high school age men with a structured and supportive space to learn about healthy masculinity and translate learning into community leadership. The WISE Club, which launched in 2012, provides a similar space for girls and young women to build empowered versions of womanhood. WISE Club facilitators will serve female youth ages 12-19 in the DC metropolitan area public, charter, and private schools.
