World's Apart... Coming Together is a motivational/training video and handbook resource based on the action research of the Creating Peaceful Learning Environments Team of the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Centre for Family Violence Research at the University of New Brunswick. This project was one component of a national investigation of violence in the socialization of the Canadian girl child, developed by the Alliance of Five Research Centres on Violence and funded by Status of Women Canada. The research monitored community-initiated violence-prevention initiatives for and with adolescents in six rural communities in Atlantic Canada. This set of materials was designed as a resource for communities wishing to initate gender-sensitive programming. Findings of the research indicated that gender-segregated as well as gender-integrated activities are important to successful intervention with teenagers, give that girls and boys are socialized differently with regard to violence experiences and their acceptance.
