Welcome to boys to men

EMPOWERING TEENAGE BOYS SINCE 1996

History

Boys to Men Mentoring Network was founded in 1996 by Craig McClain, Herb Sigurdson, and his son Joe.

programs

Our programs are designed to create safe spaces for both boys and mentors to develop positive and healthy relationships built on honesty, consistency, and accountability.

CURRICULUM

Our community based mentoring model challenges young men to reach their fullest potential

FATHERLESS GENERATION

Fatherless teenage boys have a higher than average risk of participating in crime, dropping out of school, and entering into the prison system before the age of 18.

SEE HOW BOYS TO MEN CHANGES LIVES

Every week, our mentors show up at middle schools, high schools, and community centers to give teenage boys a community of men who listen, encourage, and empower them.

Shaun Tomson, Damien Hobgood, and their friends will be there. Don’t miss the opportunity to surf with surf legends! The goal is for each surfer to attempt to catch 100 waves in 1 day and raise $1,000 for Boys to Men Mentoring.
