OHL Onside

the OHL ONSIDE program has been specifically designed for
OHL players and team staff aimed at increasing the understanding and
awareness of the player’s responsibility to demonstrate respect for
women through their actions and words.

The project was developed
as a two-hour workshop with opportunity for personal development and
ongoing leadership as young men in the OHL.  This initiative sees the
OHL as leaders in promoting the importance of respectful relationships
between young men and women in their communities.

KSAC is proud to work closely with the Peterborough Petes.

The MENding Program

The MENding program is a leadership initiative for male-identified people who are interested in educating other men about sexual & gender-based violence. The program covers masculinity and what it means to be a man, sexual & gender-based violence, consent, and bystander intervention. After having these discussions, the program trains participants to be able to teach what they have learned and put their newly acquired knowledge to use!

The MENding program is delivered across four 3-hour sessions:

This introduction to the MENding program includes icebreakers and course learning outcomes, and some key definitions and statistics to know. Participants will make connections between gender-based violence and other systems of power and oppression, including MMIWG, patriarchy, locker room culture, and police.

Session 2 explores the roots and causes of gender-based violence, with learning activities to highlight concepts. We’ll also explore healthy masculinity and what it means to ‘be a man’, including stereotypes, and leadership skills that help us hold other men accountable.

Session 3 is about exploration, including examinations of privilege and intersectionality, and guided self-reflection. Participants engage with strategies and barriers to bystander intervention, and navigating disclosures of harm safely.

The final session offers participants a chance to reflect on learning outcomes, and some of the definitions versus actuality. We’ll have a chance to reflect on the question “what does consent mean to me?”, and to think about boundaries and leadership.
