It’s Easier To Build Strong Children Than Fix Broken Men! Fredrick Douglas



Boys 2 Men Youth Programs is committed to continuing to create new and broader pathways and opportunities for boys to develop as young leaders. Mentoring, leadership exploration, and learning are activities that define the current and future activities Boys 2 Men Youth Programs , youth, and their families will continue to support. Therefore, triumphing life’s adversity with strong and enduring public support can improve the lives of disadvantaged youth for the better, forever.

Through these activities, students will begin or expand the ways in which they define themselves as leaders. Additionally, by equipping families with information about other programs to assist with inappropriate and challenging behaviors, parents can better support their youth as they develop into young men.

As an incorporated non-profit corporation Boys 2 Men Youth Programs is at the frontline of the at-risk youth battleground. Our vision is to foster values – integrity, leadership, and respect – within the hearts and minds of youth. Our mission is to provide positive, practical, and supportive activities for boys and young men to reach their full potential – as caring, productive, and responsible leaders.

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.
