Interval House Crisis Shelters and Centers for Victims of Domestic Violence boasts a rich legacy of male engagement and leadership that spans more than three decades, since its founding in 1979, as reflected in its founding Board of Directors and volunteers to its first Program Director, who was recognized by the U.S. Department of Justice for his early leadership in the domestic violence field. This historic inclusion is part and parcel of Interval House’s longstanding philosophy of diversity and empowerment, which has fostered model programs and demonstration projects across the State and nation. Today, male leaders continue to serve as positive role models, creating a visible and affirming presence for clients and their children as program directors, direct services staff, interns, volunteers, and community advocates.
Many male advocates for the elimination of gender-based violence sometimes struggle to forge effective and harmonious partnerships with female advocates in local and global movements. Interval House has long worked to create concrete points of entry for inspired male advocates. Some of Interval House’s notable male engagement initiatives include the Second Generation Teen Dating Violence Prevention Project, Creating A Safe Environment (CASE) Interfaith Project, “Calling All Men” conferences, African American Network for Violence Free Relationships (ANFVR), and most recently, the Ujima Project to Engage Men & Boys. These initiatives bring the skills, talents, and gifts of men and boys to the ongoing efforts to stop gender-based violence, promote healthy relationships, and create peaceful communities.
This presentation highlights the work within these programs, particularly the work of the Ujima Project to Engage Men and Boys.
