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.

Be an advocate

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.
