it takes men to show boys what manhood looks like
Our boys mentoring program focuses on building strong men. We take our role seriously providing tools, resources and examples that will help expose them to new things and foster a well-rounded mindset.
All Boys Need Mentoring!
There may be a greater need for boys from single-parent households to have mentors who provide another voice and perspective other than their mothers. Even the most loving and supportive parents rely on a network of resources to empower their children to maximize their potential. The presence of a mentor in a boy’s life should in no way suggest they are deficient or lacking in a negative way.
