BOYS IN CARE – Strengthening Boys to pursue Care Occupations (BiC)
About the project



The project "BOYS IN CARE – Strengthening Boys to pursue Care Occupations (BiC)" - JUST/2015/RGEN/AG/ROLE/9249 is implemented from April 2017 to September 2019 in Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Lithuania and Slovenia.


  • Explicitly naming boys as driving force and target group in the desegregation of educational and vocational choices with a focus on care professions;
  • Developing, implementing and disseminating educational and counselling tools and mechanisms for teachers and vocational counsellors to be able to support boys in their untypical vocational choices;
  • Create and improve initiatives for gender untypical vocational choices supporting boys in untypical vocational pathways;

  • Challenging the under-representation of men in professional care education including health care, elder care, early childhood education and primary school teaching where the majority of EU countries have less than 15% of their care work undertaken by men;

  • Create supportive environments enabling boys to pursue care careers;

  • Challenging a cultural ascription of care work as an extension of women’s ‘natural’ function in the family;

  • Foster caring masculinities and challenge rigid gender norms.
