Manhood 2.0 evaluation

Child Trends is collaborating with Promundo and the Latin American Youth Center to evaluate the Manhood 2.0 program, an adaptation of Promundo’s internationally recognized Program H curriculum. Manhood 2.0 encourages adolescent and young adult males, ages 16-22, to discuss gender norms, masculinity, and fatherhood as a gateway to a broader discussion on contraceptive use, violence, and teen pregnancy prevention. Child Trends, Promundo, and the Latin American Youth Center anticipate serving a sample of 650 Hispanic and African American participants ages 16 to 22 (325 each in the treatment and control groups) in the Washington, DC, area across a 3-year implementation period. This study is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Office of Adolescent Health.
