The YP Foundation

Encouraging gender equitable attitudes among young men

adolescents

Initiated in 2002 and registered in 2007, The YP Foundation (TYPF) is a youth-led organisation that supports and develops youth leadership to advance the rights of young women, girls, genderqueer youth and other marginalised young people. To do this, TYPF builds young people’s feminist, intersectional and human rights based leadership on issues of gender justice and inclusive education and healthcare.

Feminist Campus is a programme design exercise to develop a new on-campus intervention on gender equity and masculinities. The aim is to understand and analyse key issues and experiences of gender based violence and discrimination online and offline among young people in higher education institutions. The programme seeks to ultimately deepen young men’s understanding of gender injustices in order to reject violence and promote positive masculinities in thought and action.
