I am taking the 100 Wave Challenge by attempting to raise $2,000 for a remarkable organization called Boys to Men Mentoring. This is my 10th year being a mentor with BTM and I have personally witnessed the changes that happen with these boys each school year! Many of the boys I knew in middle school are now in college or living a great life!
Boys to Men Mentoring (BTM) is a group mentoring program working to connect hundreds of teenage boys to positive male role models they can depend on. BTM programs include weekly, in-school group mentoring, retreat weekends, beach trips, and other activities all geared to improve each boy's overall self-esteem, critical thinking skills, and self-accountability.
Please consider making a donation to my page and help me support these young men who are working to be the best they can be! If you are concerned about supporting a non-profit that gets results this is it! Oh yea that is me in the picture- the bald guy with the white shorts!
When Boys to Men Mentoring began in 1996, the devastation of fatherlessness on our community fueled their desire to support fatherless teenage boys as they transitioned into adulthood. A boy without a dad in his life is disproportionately more likely to drop out of high school, end up in prison, and commit suicide. Since then, BTM has grown to provide weekly mentorship to teenage boys from all walks of life looking for positive men empower them to be the best they can be.
Today, BTM facilitates weekly group mentoring at over 36 middle and high schools across San Diego County for over 800 teenage boys. To learn more, please visit www.boystomen.org.
