Y4Y Empowering Manual book coverThe Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) and its partner organisations are happy to present the Youth4Youth Training Manual, an awareness-raising, training and peer education programme for young people in formal and non formal educational settings aimed at preventing and combating gender-based violence among youth.

The Youth4Youth Training Manual provides teachers, education practitioners, and youth workers, with the knowledge and the tools needed to plan and implement Youth4Youth training workshops for young people. It contains comprehensive information on the theoretical and practical framework of the programme alongside session plans, activity resources and evaluation tools.

Through the Youth4Youth programme, young people explore their knowledge and attitudes towards gender roles and gender-based violence and are empowered to create an environment free from violence for themselves as well as for their peers.

The Youth4Youth manual was developed within the framework of the transnational project Youth4Youth: Empowering Young People in Preventing Gender-based Violence through Peer Education, co-funded by the European Commission’s Daphne III Programme, and coordinated by the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) in partnership with Casa Delle Donne per Non Subire Violenza (Italy), the Centre of Research in Theories and Practices that Overcome Inequalities-University of Barcelona (Spain), the European Anti-Violence Network (Greece) and Women s Issues Information Centre (Lithuania).

The manual is also now available in Greek (GR)Greek (CY), Italian, Lithuanian, and Spanish.
