We’re thrilled to share the sneak peek of The Mask You Live In Curriculum cover art below! With the upcoming release of our K-2 grade, 3-5 grade, middle and high school, and university curricula, we’re starting a dialogue around healthy masculinity when boys need it most.
As early as elementary school, boys confront messages that encourage them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic relationships, objectify and degrade women and girls, and resolve conflicts through violence.
That’s why this week we encourage you to learn more about the curriculum and how to bring it to your community. With our tools and your support, youth across the nation will be able to overcome limiting stereotypes and fulfill their human potential.
