Healing Justice, The HIM Initiative Men’s Leadership & Mentorship Program

Program Overview

The HIM Initiative Men’s Leadership & Mentorship program is a compensated pilot leadership program for male-identified folks who have been incarcerated, and/or are under the supervision of the criminal justice system. We believe that we have a lot to learn from men’s experiences of being criminalized, and we challenge the narrative that folks who have been in that system can’t help heal our community; we believe in their wisdom, resilience, and capacity to support the young boys in their lives. Our boys need these men and need their stories to support their own healing journey.

What – A paid, 6-month pilot men’s leadership & mentorship program, with weekly adult and youth talking circles. Each man who successfully completes the program will be paid $900.

Who – All applicants for this program should be male-identified, have been incarcerated, and/or are under the supervision of the criminal justice system. As all participants will work directly with youth, participants cannot have been convicted of crimes against children, or sexual misconduct. We are seeking men who have a serious desire to take a closer look at the way that power and control show up in our lives, and are interested in learning more about our role in supporting youth to break intergenerational cycles of men’s violence.

When – All applicants must register by March 22nd. Mandatory information meeting for all applicants on March 24, 8 AM.

How – To apply to participate in this program, please click on this link / scan the QR code to complete the registration application. Application deadline is March 21st, 5 PM.
