How to
Get Involved

Our Programs

Stand Up and Speak Out.
Our Be More than a Bystander Program aims to increase awareness of the community’s responsibility to end gender-based violence. We are all in this together.

Be an Ally
The Steel City Allies seek individuals who are committed to ending gender-based violence and through action promote violence-free living.

Community Leader Program.
The role of the Community Leader is to raise awareness, advocate, educate and mentor within their community and workplace to end gender-based violence.

What you can do

As a community, we must come together in new ways to end gender-based violence. Here are some ways YOU can help:

Donate

MentorAction continues their work without funding and requires your help – whether through financial donation or volunteer hours. Please contact us to find out more or click on the link below to donate.

Be an advocate

Stand Up and Speak Out against gender-based violence. Be an advocate for women, and be more than a bystander. Through education, awareness and resources, we can end gender-based violence together.

Volunteer

MentorAction has various programs to get everyone involved in ending gender-based violence. Through our Steel City Ally program, Community Leader Program, and other opportunities, our volunteers learn the skills to be a role model in the community and lead by example.
