need of boys and young men to reflect traditional gender roles and male
stereotypes. Poika offers workshops for boys and young men to support their
development from child into manhood. The workshops are held in schools and
social centres, where boys and young men can explore and reflect on their
identity/ies under expert supervision. Themes range from violence-prevention,
