Welcome to The Boy Game

The Project

The Boy Game is a 16 minute video and interactive website that targets bullying at its core - the culture of toughness and silence boys live by. Targets need to be protected, absolutely, but rather than vilify bullies,The Boy Game looks to unpack the complex dynamics that lead some boys to bully and the majority to stand watching in silent conflict. Michael Kimmel, Pulitzer Prize nominated author of Manhood In America says, "if the conversation about bullying is going to advance this is the project to help us advance it".

The Goal

Boys desperately need a way to talk about the painful pressure to be tough and unemotional they are subject to, to develop the resilience needed to stand up, be themselves, and redefine masculinity in terms of emotional, tolerant strength. And the girls around them who are both the victims of boys' aggression and can intensify it or stand up against it need to be part of the discussion.

The project which portrays the intense pressure boys face every day is designed to raise critical dialogue and provide powerful interactive activities for middle/high school kids. Steven Brion-Meisels of Harvard Ed says, "The Boy Game may well save a life".
