Purpose: One hundred-twenty young women from eight neighbourhoods across the city of Toronto will gain the tools to act as leaders, challenge gender violence and mentor their peers. Eighty youth workers from across the city will learn to support participants, receiving specific training regarding gender-based violence and concrete skills to challenge it. Sixteen young women will become peer facilitators, bringing their knowledge of gender violence prevention to male peers. Ultimately, 30 youth (male and female) will act as ambassadors to launch a campaign against gender violence, specifically street harassment. The project will culminate in a two-day community accountability event where youth and community leaders are challenged to take action against violence and share best practices for addressing gender violence.
