    Abstract:
    In this book, Nic Fine and Des van Niekerk have together managed very eloquently to document the work of Hearts of Men from 2001 to 2014 and informed by their many years of experience working in youth and community development. Hearts of Men has been facilitating programmes and community-based interventions in the Western Cape for 14 years from 2001 to 2014. Our two key focus areas have been to close the generational communication gap between older men and young men and boys, as well as to actively engage with men in their roles as fathers to their own children, and as mentors to other young men. This book is intended as a resource for anyone working with young people in challenging circumstances. Many say that all young people today are at risk: as moving from childhood, through teenage-hood to adulthood, is a journey full of challenges, risks and dangers. This book is also aimed at those who are already working with, or intending to work with men and young men, especially with the aim of setting up community-based mentorship support programmes. This book will hopefully be useful to those working with families, in the hope of strengthening relationships and parenting, and also to those working within community-building and safety initiatives. We hope this work will also be of practical benefit to those studying social work, community and youth development, psychology and gender studies.
