Boys II Young Men is a mentoring program designed to target young males between the ages of 8 to 12 years of age. The primary objective of this program is to provide our youth with positive role models, advice, support, and expectations that will shape them into goal oriented, independent men in the future. At Boys II Young Men, we believe that in order to create future change, we must first change the thoughts and actions of our children today.
The mission of this program is to instill P.O.W.E.R. (Purpose, Order, Wisdom, Empowerment, and Wisdom) in the kids that participate:
