NEXT GEN MENtors
Join an online community of practice for dedicated educators across Canada! Next Gen Men will train & equip you to facilitate Next Gen Men’s 10 session youth program in your school or youth group, and provide ongoing, long-term support so that you can succeed.
With the support of Next Gen Men staff, members will:
continually increase their knowledge, confidence, and capacity to educate and empower boys and young men around gender.
receive ongoing, long-term support from NGM staff and peers, through our online learning portal.
conduct pre/post participation evaluations with their cohorts of youth in order to measure impact and efficacy.
Together, we will ensure that more boys and young men across Canada receive crucial support and education around gender, mental health, and positive masculinities.
Break cycles of violence.
Promote gender equality.
What do training participants receive?
Every member of Next Gen Mentors participates in our capacity-building training (Raising Next Gen Men), therefore they will receive: Next Gen Men's resource list of recommended readings, videos, and activities, and a certificate for 8 training hours. Members will additionally receive access to: the NGM youth program curriculum and licensing, our online learning portal to connect with NGM staff, as well as other members, and evaluation materials for the NGM youth program curriculum.
Who is this for?
Parents, teachers, youth workers, coaches, or anyone interested in supporting the social and emotional development of adolescent boys and young men.
What does a membership to NGMentors cost?
Educators can license NGM's curricula at a low cost. The licensing cost also includes access to our online membership portal, and eight hours of online or in-person training (Raising NGM). One license is required for each school or site that will use the licensed curricula.
Can I become a Next Gen Mentor regardless of where I live?
Yes, since our training can be completed online, you can become a Next Gen Mentor no matter where you live!
Does the membership expire?
We are happy to offer renewal options that allow for ongoing curriculum updates, and continued access to our member portal.
