Youth Development

Direct service through youth development programs are the cornerstone of Men Can Stop Rape's work. Since 2000, the Men of Strength (MOST) Club - the premier 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. Identified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as among the top gender violence prevention programs in the country, the MOST Club is currently serving youth at over 100 sites across the country. MOST Club members have become spokespersons for healthy masculinity and prevention in their schools and the culture at large, speaking at events put on by the United Nations and Liz Claiborne, to name a few.

Our Campus Men of Strength (MOST) Club is the nation’s most comprehensive strategy to engage college-age men in preventing violence against women, developing healthy masculinity, and organizing to create campuses free from violence. Campus Men of Strength accomplishes these goals by supporting student groups, faculty, and staff who are working to end violence against women. We provide training, organizing tools and technical assistance based on our experience as a national leader in the prevention of men’s violence against women.
