Boys to Men: Helping disadvantaged boys grow into men.
I’m doing it!
On Saturday, September 23rd I will jump in the water and take the 100 Wave Challenge! I am going to attempt to catch 100 waves in ONE DAY, because I am dedicated to helping grow the Boys to Men Mentoring program. I have been working with disadvantaged boys for three (3) years now, and this is probably the best program and process I have seen for truly helping disadvantaged youth become good citizens and shape the future of America.
Boys to Men Mentoring is a non-profit that provides group-mentoring programs for fatherless and high-risk teenage boys at middle schools, high schools and in open community meetings. Group meetings with a community of men that volunteer their time to just to listen, and a place where the boys can interact with other boys just like them. Because of Boys to Men, these boys no longer feel alone.
I PERSONALLY MENTOR6th, 7th and 8th GRADERS WEEKLY and know for a fact that it works and has extremely positive results by helping potentially troubled boys better their lives.
73% of the boys in this program are growing up without a father. Boys who participate in the Boys to Men program show a significant increase in their self-esteem. As a result of this one factor, their grades improve, they have less discipline issues at home and school, and their dropout rates are dramatically reduced.
With the money raised from the 100 Wave Challenge, Boys to Men holds 36 weekly meetings in San Diego alone -- in 28 schools with 33 in-school programs and 3 evening programs, and serve more than 724 boys in San Diego County alone! But they need to be in every middle school in the country. I want to help them get there. After just one year of weekly meetings, the boys have 27% higher grades, and 85% less disciplinary issues.
Every dollar you donate helps! My goal this year is $40,000.00 and I really need your help to help give these young disadvantaged boys the guidance to follow the path to become good, honest, productive men, rather than on drugs, or in prison.
Thank you from me, and from all of the boys,
