Boys to Men Mentoring Awarded Multi-Year $50,000 Grant from the Players Coalition

Boys to Men Mentoring has been awarded a generous multi-year grant totaling $50,000 from the Players Coalition. This funding will significantly support B2M’s mission to provide mentorship and guidance to underserved high school and middle school boys, helping them develop into responsible, self-sufficient men.
The Players Coalition, a non-profit organization founded by professional athletes, is dedicated to making an impact on social justice, racial equality and connecting low-income youth to the resources they need to become the best versions of themselves.
“This grant from the Players Coalition represents a significant milestone for Boys to Men Mentoring and will have a lasting impact on the lives of many struggling teens,” said Rose Courtney, Executive Director of Boys to Men Mentoring. “The funding will allow us to expand our programs into more schools and reach more boys in dire need of guidance and support. The Player Coalition’s dedication to empowering underserved communities aligns perfectly with our values and mission.”
The $50,000 grant will be allocated over a multi-year period, allowing Boys to Men Mentoring to sustain and enhance existing programs, as well as develop new initiatives to better serve our community. These in-school mentoring programs focus on building self-esteem, fostering personal growth, and encouraging positive decision-making through consistent, long-term mentoring relationships.
Mike Shildt, Manager of the San Diego Padres, expressed his enthusiasm during the announcement of the grant with B2M Co-founder, Joe Sigurdson. “I love what Boys to Men is doing and it speaks to my heart. I’ve been mentored, and I needed every bit of it. I believe in what you’re doing completely,” said Shildt. “I also want to invest some time to speak with the boys inside the circles and do what I can to help.” he added.
