The weekly after-school sessions actively promote teamwork, leadership, and personal responsibility and offers 5th grade boys’ opportunities to engage in (1) individual and group wellness activities; (2) leadership development activities; (3) education enrichment activities; and 4) practical “Skills” experiences.
For many young boys, personal and social challenges are causing harmful effects on their psychological and emotional maturation. Dropouts experience higher levels of unemployment, receive lower earnings, and experience health and affective problems at more alarming rates than high school graduates. Fortunately, the positive-peer collaboration in Boys 2 Men Youth Programs encourages strong academic achievement for elementary school children and offers leadership involvement with and within the community.
During these volatile social and economic times, Boys 2 Men Youth Programs is actively building young male leaders who are prepared to combat the growing negative momentum of youth in society.

Finally, Boys 2 Men provides a celebratory event for all its participants who make it to the end of the year. At the conclusion of the event each youth receives a Leadership trophy commemorating their successful completion of the program. They also receive their Boys 2 Men Youth Programs t-shirt, dinner and tickets attend activities such as Sky-Zone or Go-Cart riding as one way to continue to expose them to other ways to have fun. On average we celebrate nearly 40 students each year. We also recognize our nearly 10 volunteers who have helped us make it through the years.
Funding is very important and needed for our organization to continue providing programming in the Des Moines community. We could definitely use donations of any amount to continue our programming of football camps, camping, tours to historical sites, local sporting events, snacks, meals and drinks, t-shirts, games, supplies and a host of other necessities as we continue to be proactive in our efforts to save our youth. This is important because programming and all activities are 100% free to all participants.
