Boys to Men Club Minneapolis empowers boys age 7-18 to become heroes in their neighborhood by helping them:
Serve their neighbors.
...while having a lot of fun along the way.
But in the end they are learning personal responsibility + entrepreneurial skills while building relationships with neighbors and strengthening the fabric of their neighborhood!
"I’m thankful to the boys. They’ve cut my grass, raked leaves and shoveled show. I have been relying on them for years. I’m a shut-in so with winter coming I need them!"
— Florence Timmermann, 100-year-old neighbor
"I'm never going to miss another Boys to Men event. I'm bringing my friends!"
—Mar Mar, a handful with a heart-of-gold
"I'm not cold! I want to keep shoveling and making money!"
—Darion, a determined 4th-grader
Boys to Men provides work tools, supplies, inventory + more. Your gifts will help the boys take their first steps towards becoming young men!
In 2018 the boys are going to be completing missions. Each event will give the boys the chance to earn, serve or have fun in their own neighborhood.
We're looking for 100 people who will give $60 to help us:
Buy supplies for serve days (trash bags, rakes, care packages)
Pay boys for their hard work on earn days (boys make $5-20 each mission they complete)
Create chances for the boys to bring joy + laughter (practical joke kits, bike-fixing tools + more!)
With these opportunities boys become heroes not victims. Neighbors begin to see them as assets instead of liabilities. And they become their best selves.
We need to hit our fundraising goal to determine the opportunities we can provide the boys in 2018.
We don't have paid staff—100% of all donations go towards programming with our hard-working boys.
Join us as the boys make an even bigger and better impact in their neighborhood in 2018!
