WHAT IS BOYS TO MEN MENTORING?
Boys to Men Mentoring Hawaii is committed to addressing the devastating effects of fatherlessness and missing positive male role models on a young man's life. We are creating communities of support, encouragement, and empowerment so that no boy feels like he is alone. We are bringing these disconnected boys back into our community and challenging them to be young men of integrity, honesty, and service.
Changing Lives, One Boy at A Time.
- The number of boys growing up without fathers or positive male role models in their lives has reached epidemic proportions.
- Boys without fathers or positive role models in their lives are 10x more likely to abuse drugs / alcohol, have school disciplinary incidences, drop out of school, or commit suicide than boys with fathers / mentors in their lives.
- A majority of the last 27 mass shooters on the US Mainland grew up in fatherless or missing postive role model households.
Boys to Men Mentoring Hawaii tackles the problem at the core, sitting weekly in Group Mentoring circles in middle and high schools across Hawaii, helping create a safer community. Boys in our program grow into young men, connected to the community, living lives of service and purpose.
We have a proven community-based, in school, group mentoring approach to producing real change with boys on their journey to becoming men. We are excited to expand our program to the schools on Oahu. Boys to Men Mentoring Hawaii works with boys to learn accountability, integrity, responsibility, nonviolent communication and community service.
