About AVFMS: a Snapshot

Who We Are

We are an organization that advocates educational equity for men and boys.
We believe pursuing this goal will ultimately benefit both sexes.

What We Do

Our main activities are counselling, publishing, research, public speaking, networking, and direct action.
We’ve been doing this since August 2013.

How We’re Different

1. Comprehensiveness. We address the full spectrum of issues men and boys face in academia.
2. Resources. We create critical resources no one else has for parents, students, teachers, and advocates – our crown jewel being our research databases.
3. Value System. Our foundational value system is unique among advocacy groups speaking on men’s and boys’ education issues.

NCFM is honored to present Jonathan Taylor with our 2014 Award of Excellence in Advancing Men’s Issues. Jonathan, his research, his activism, his writings, internet social networks, and website A Voice for Male Students, are invaluable, particularly for male college students and our society at large.

– Harry Crouch, President, National Coalition for Men

That was one of the most rewarding clicks on the internet that I have ever made. The site A Voice for Male Students is absolutely extraordinary and is so very much needed. It is filling a major moral and social vacuum.

– Laurence Thomas, Ph.D., Syracuse University

What I like about AVFMS is that it is academically rigorous, and tactically confrontational when it comes to feminism. It doesn’t pick fights without reason, but it doesn’t shy away from unpleasant truths when they are relevant. In other words, it is constructed in a way that makes it extremely hard to dismiss as it highlights an extremely important issue. Avoiceformalestudents.com is a site that I can direct anyone to when they express concern over boys in education. It’s effective because it lays out a comprehensive articulation of how severe the problem is, and what the contributing forces are.

– Allen Hunter, Donor
