The prevention of gender violence among young boys at the primary and secondary schools in Albania is considered important during the projects implementation of NGOs dealing with domestic violence. This paper consider the perspective according to which, sustainable programs for the `Non-violence` education of young boys in the schools, are achieved only if we exalt the historical memory of peaceful citizenship. This ongoing educational goal should include also  campaigns for arising awareness, treatments of youths exposed to violence and abuse in the families and also it is needed to involve young people from communities where criminal activities, bullying and sexual harassment in schools are present. According to recent studies, these factors warn on future domestic violence risks. Albania lacks of programs that in European Union countries constitute the standardized and accredited informative activities for young people. Workshops that raise awareness on vulnerability must be placed together with preventive programs for peer education.

Keywords: gender violence, domestic violence, bullying, sexual harassment, peer education programs.
