Boys to Men Mentoring Program

 

Boys to Men Mentoring is a nonprofit organization that is committed to creating communities of dedicated men who are able to guide and support at-risk, often fatherless, boys on their journey to manhood. Every week, mentors show up at middle schools, high schools, and community centers to give teenage boys a community of men who listen, encourage, and empower them. Over 75% of the boys currently in the program are growing up without a father. Their community based mentoring approach gives boys a variety of positive male role models who show up consistently, tell the truth about their struggles as men, ask the boys what kind of man they want to be, praise them for their gifts, support them when they mess up, and encourage them to become the man they want to be.
