The “Eagles” workshop was created to replicate the Liga MAC’s Wings experience but for boys. The goal of this workshop is to help young males develop skills, attitudes, and knowledge based on issues relating to sexuality, gender, health, masculinity and gender violence, culminating in the students developing an awareness for where they are going and what they plan to do after high school graduation. The ultimate objective is to help male and female adolescents coexist by learning to take care of one’s self and others. The emphasis is on how a mutually respectful way of life improves personal, emotional and social ties while enhancing quality of life.
The methodology and content used is socio-affective experiential approach with the use of games as an educational tool to change attitudes. The Eagles program consists of five 4-hour-sessions: Sexuality, Masculinity Mandates, Health and Gender; Domestic Violence and a Life Project.
