Society Without Violence NGO created a comprehensive academic offline course pertaining to gender for teachers/educators, and adults in continuing education.

The long-term experience of SWV in the field revealed the lack of in-depth gender studies course in the Armenian language developed for beginner and intermediate levels. The designed course specifically targets teachers and educators of the secondary schools aiming to decrease gender-based stereotypes and discrimination in educational institutions through educating the staff on gender matters.    

The course is designed by six local and international feminist academic scholars. It consists of six modules covering the definitions and concepts in gender studies including gender, sex, gender roles, gender stereotypes, gender – based violence, media and gender constructions, structural violence, continuum of violence, militarization, etc. For the detailed study of gender matters the social context and the role of the institutions are examined parallelly.

The syllabus was developed in a form of separate guidebook providing thorough understanding of objectives and outcomes of each module of the course (the syllabus is available in Armenian).

The course was developed in the scope of Enabling Accessible and Sustained Gender Education project.

With the efforts of SWV and partner organizations 29 volunteers and coordinators from 6 countries were engaged in "Love and Respect; Preventing Teen Dating Violence" project reaching over 1500 young people to raise awareness and prevent teen dating violence.

"Ambassadors of Love & Respect: Involving Peer Educators in addressing Teen Dating Violence" brochure provides instructions on how to engage volunteers as peer workers in preventive programs.

Research suggests that young people are more likely to hear and personalize messages, and thus to change their attitudes and behaviours, if they believe the messenger is similar to them and faces the same concerns and pressures. Numerous studies have demonstrated the positive influence of their peers on youth's health behaviours, in regards to various aspects, such as relationships, sexuality, violent behaviours, substance use, social exclusion/inclusion etc.
