Wise Guys is a comprehensive 8-12 week workshop designed for the prevention of adolescent pregnancy and dating violence that focuses on 10-19 year-old males. The program promotes the concept of responsibility-especially in the area of sexuality-and also teaches young men the importance of life skills such as setting goals, decision-making, communication, and resisting peer pressure.
Although few male-involvement programs have been evaluated and shown to be effective, Wise Guys has strong evaluation results. In a six-month post program follow up program participants, compared to a control group, showed: increased communication with their parents about sexuality related issues; increased knowledge of sexuality; increased support of abstinence; increased knowledge about and use of contraception; improved attitudes about sexuality and sex roles.
