AMEND Together is YWCA Dayton’s first program aimed at engaging men and boys in ending violence against women and girls.

Boys are not always given space to be themselves, to be transparent, and to feel seen, where AMEND creates a space to grow, learn and be authentic.

AMEND Together partners with local schools to provide AMEND clubs across the Dayton area, providing a safe space to talk.

We’re currently open for registration for our 2023 Summer Collabs (see below), where boys 10-15 can come for workshops with STEM activities, a barbershop talk, field trips, a men’s mental health panel, and more.

Program history

AMEND Together is a primary prevention initiative developed by YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee dedicated to ending violence against women and girls by engaging men and boys to change the culture that supports violence.

YWCA Dayton is proud to have brought AMEND Together to the Miami Valley community as part of our primary prevention offerings in our work to prevent and respond to domestic violence and sexual assault.
