About Project

During the 2017-2020, partners in the ADA project “Men as Boys as Partners in Promoting Gender Equality and the Prevention of Youth Extremism and Violence in the Balkans” should be implementing our new school based model - Program Y methodology. One of the phases is Baseline Evaluation. These guidelines are a resource for starting the implementation of the survey. In the baseline evaluation we are trying to measure the change in attitudes, knowledge and behavior of young men and young women from Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Kosovo related to gender equality, healthy life styles, violence, gender based violence and youth extremism. The baseline evaluation will be carried out by using the questionnaire prepared for this research. It is important to start the baseline before the beginning of the trainings for teachers and peer educators as well as before workshops for students in order to make sure the participants have not been influenced by the content of the workshops. For the evaluation purposes, we will be focused on the 1st year students (young men and young women). It is important to have the right number of students for the evaluation. So, we need to have 300 first grade students selected in both schools (if possible 50% of boys, 50% of girls). If schools do not have 300 first grade students this is also acceptable.

Background

The Men and Boys as Partners in Promoting Gender Equality and prevention of Youth Extremism and Violence in the Balkans or Young Men Initiative (YMI) project builds upon CARE´s comprehensive and programmatic effort to fight interpersonal and gender based violence (GBV) as well as to improve gender equality in the region. The YMI project has been implementing in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Serbia and is targeting young men and women to build their knowledge and attitudes concerning gender equality and healthy lifestyles and to decrease levels of GBV. In line with the goals of the European Union the overall objective of the project is to improve gender equality and decrease interpersonal and gendered violence within Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Kosovo society. Unfortunately, in all targeted countries domestic and gender based violence, peer violence and terrorism in the light of ISIL influence in the region, remained main threats for youth and all citizens. In consequence the project purpose is to increase the uptake of healthy, youth extremism and non-violent and gender equitable lifestyles amongst boys and men (and girls and women) participating in the program.
