CAPTAINS & POETS CURRICULUM

There is a Captain and a Poet in every one of us. 

Captains & Poets is a signature program of boypro-ject and presents a comprehensive set of resources and lesson ideas to help raise self-awareness around what it means to be a whole person, regardless of gender. We aim to give permission for young people to access both the Captain and the Poet within themselves and to be able to identify and embrace each of these archetypes in others. 

The curriculum is designed to create an understanding of how gender constructs inform and limit our identity in the world and our acceptance and understanding of others.  Our programs are intended to empower young people to be active in the formation of their own personal identity and in the establishment of new norms around gender and interpersonal relationships.

JUNIOR PROGRAM

This module is designed to further explore the concept of gender constructs and how they impact our self-definition and limit our perception of others.  Here, we teach self-awareness, empathy and compassion, conscious decision-making, living from one’s values and being inclusive of others.

SECONDARY PROGRAM

SECONDARY PROGRAM

This module is designed to create deeper awareness around how gender constructs contribute to restrictive social norms and hold us back from reaching our full potential at every life stage and the impact this has on communities and organizations. Here, we put emphasis on peer engagement and leadership.
