1. What is Men For Change?
Men For Change is a men's group based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada that formed in 1989 in response to the horrific multiple murder of 14 female engineering students in Montreal, Quebec. We continue to work in our community towards our goals of promoting gender equality and ending violence in society. The Healthy Relationships curriculum is our principal offering to communities in support of these goals. More information about Men For Change is available at our Web site: http:// www.chebucto.ns.ca/CommunitySupport/MenforChange/m4c_back.html.
2. How was the Healthy Relationships Curriculum (HRC) developed?
After facilitating workshops and speaking in more than a dozen schools, we saw that there was a need for a comprehensive violence-prevention curriculum that dealt with the roots of violence, rather than the symptoms. In 1992, three members of the group, Peter Davison, Roger Davies (both teachers) and Andrew Safer (a freelance journalist) committed themselves to the project. Two years later, the curriculum was introduced to educators who were working in our partner school board.
3. Who were your development partners?
The program was developed in partnership with the Halifax County-Bedford District School Board. Funding was provided through small grants from the Nova Scotia Department of Health Community Health Promotion Fund and the IWK Children's Hospital Foundation.
