iGuy Empowerment Workshops

iGuy Overview

iGuy Empowerment WorkshopsiGuy is a straight-to-the-point, lighthearted empowerment workshop that prepares students in grades 4-7 who identify as boys* to make smart decisions in even the toughest situations. We’ll challenge society’s definition of masculinity, unmask our secret identity, blow off some steam (in a healthy way), tackle online safety, and help build relationships we can feel proud of. In a style that makes sense to guys, Saleema Noon’s team takes the role of older brother, giving your son the skills and information needed to ace his teenage years.


i don’t need to be Superman
A superhero takes many forms. Let’s talk about what it really means to be a guy, krypnonite and all.

i am not my biceps
What you see in video games isn’t real life. Real power comes from within, and has nothing to do with muscles.

i express myself
Newsflash: Guys have feelings too! Let’s learn how to express them in a healthy way.

i get and give respect
Assertiveness isn’t weakness, and confidence isn’t arrogance. To deal with conflict in a way that works we need to know the difference.

i get the ‘net
From the G-rated to the X-rated and everything in between, smart decisions online put the ‘social’ back in ‘social media’.

i have healthy relationships
It’s true – honest communication, respecting boundaries, and understanding consent make us better friends, brothers, boyfriends, and sons.
