The Boys in Schools Program
The Boys in Schools Program is provides post graduate education, research, support programs and resources to educators throughout Australia for the benefit of boys, helping them to be the best that they can be.

The Boys in Schools team believes that it's possible to use the strengths of people and environments to achieve better educational, social/emotional and behavioural outcomes for boys, teachers, schools and communities. This means that we focus on what is going well; what is working in a situation. We also look for what we can we build on to achieve a desirable outcome.
The Boys in Schools program:
- takes a positive, strength-based approach to boys and men in schools
- has a research/knowledge base for its projects
- is practical in its strategies
- values the perspectives and actions of boys, girls, their teachers and communities.
