This AXE Generation Unlabeled session focuses on a no-cost middle school program around gender roles.

Lessons include skill practice around three of the National Health Education Standards: analyzing influences, interpersonal communication and advocacy. Attendees in this session will have the opportunity to participate in two of the activities in the program to get a feel of what students may experience. Other topics within these lessons include: bias, conformity, harassment and being an upstander.
