Last October, men and youth from Boys to Men Networking centers around the country committed to joining forces and created Boys to Men USA  - a non-profit, largely volunteer-based organization whose vision is to advance the future of our communities, by preparing every young man for adulthood.


It's amazing what we have accomplished with a volunteer force, and yet, we have so much more to do to solidify the network and bring the hundreds of communities requesting our programs on board. This October, we will meet in Tucson to provide training for our leaders in partnership with the National Conflict Resolution Center, solidify our Board of Directors, approve a strategic plan, and share best practices for how our centers can continue to impact male adolescent lives and transform communities. To make this happen, we need your help.

For many of our centers, the cost of travelling across the country is not possible on their restricted budgets. The money raised in this campaign will help make sure all centers will be represented by providing resources for the men and youth who need it most.

Since the Summit will be in October, participant registration needs to be confirmed by September 29. So, we are asking for this short push to contribute what you can. Your gift will fund expert training, travel expenses, and registration fees for mentors and youth leaders. When good people come together in a good way, great things happen!

As we wait for our 501(c)(3) status to be approved, Boys to Men Networking Hawaii   has graciously agreed to be our fiscal agent. Your tax-deductible donation will be routed to Boys to Men USA to help us do the important work before us.

Rest assured, if you are aware of this campaign, it is because someone you know has been deeply affected by Boys to Men and your contribution will be greatly appreciated. Whatever you give, thank you!

We are still going strong. Thank you so much to those that have contributed. We are still working to get the mentors and Journeymen to the 2016 Summit in late October. It's not too late to contribute. Anything helps us reach our goal.

We still have a way to go. There are board members from the other side of the nation, as well as youth leaders, who are important to carry this work forward.

Whatever you can give will make a profound difference in helping Boys to Men Mentoring continue fighting the good fight of helping boys become good men.
