Youth organization Status M is continuously working with young men (5500 youths from 2010) on the adoption of positive attitudes about health, gender equality and non-violence through the Be a man clubs. Through this program we will include young men who have demonstrated risky, harmful or criminal behavior in a positive peer groups. The construction of social skills and positive reaffirmation of masculinity will encourage young men to responsibly create their own personal development plan. Our work with young men will be based on group workshops and individual counseling. Young men who were sent to the workshop (Be a man club) by Centers for Social Welfare carry special measures by participating in a series of 12 workshops.

Through the project we’ll build capacity through additional training for the implementation of specific measures of social welfare centers  on working with young men in the prevention of harmful behavior. In raising the standards of cooperation in the implementation of specific measures of social welfare centers, we will use the latest tool which was piloted in cooperation with the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports; a online course YMI, which represents a 40-day training on specific particularities and needs of working with young men through scientific basis. The methodology combines the maintenance of physical seminars and e-learning. The training will involve institutions under the jurisdiction of the Prison Administration of the Ministry of Justice, especially Turopolje Correctional Institute and the Penitentiary in Glina, and strive for further improvement of staff of the institutions to work with young men in the prevention of recurrence by building social skills.

 

We are continuing our previous work in Turopolje Correctional Institute and work with a Be a man club TUROPOLJE. Cooperation between Status M and Turopolje Correctional Institute was proven in 2013, when we worked with more than 30 residents. Be a man, change the world is a project that involves the continuous implementation of the workshop in the Correctional Institute, through which young men after their penalty are encouraged to involve in BMC workshops, which will take place in Zagreb, Rijeka and Čakovec (and surrounding neighborhoods, especially Kuršanec).
