From Boys to Men

From Boys to Men is the curriculum developed through Wellness of You, for young men who are accepted into the program. From Boys to Men’s goal is to connect the young men to positive male figures, from their community, who facilitate the sessions, each week. The facilitators provide life and technical skills training, through 26 developed class sessions, which touch on diction, entrepreneurship, technical skills, life skills and lessons, conflict resolution and decision making, and physical education.
At the end of each year, participants who attend the required number of sessions, and have met the behavioral and developmental goals, graduate to the next level of the program, and become mentors, themselves, for the incoming class.
