Mission

Building Men & Respecting Women

Motto

"If you want to be somebody, If you want to go somewhere, You got to wake-up and pay attention!"

Goals

Boys II Men, Inc. (est. 1995), is designed to be a training activity where boys of various schools will increase learning about the development towards manhood. Along with our purpose of bringing boys and men together, our mission is that boys as well as men will see the importance of spending time with each other, getting away from instant self-gratification, and developing respect for all women. Our goal is that boys will see the need to be responsible for everything they choose to do. If boys can see men that are responsible, free of drugs, and can keep their family together, the potential for boys to become positive men is greater. When all is said and done, boys need to understand that the family and love is most important. Anything worth having is worth working for.

Boys II Men members meet on Tuesdays and Fridays with one organized function or meeting a month. Members in the 8th or 9th grade that have good standing in the program for at least one year are eligible for Lifetime Membership, which grants future participation of all functions associated with Boys II Men. Continuous contact with the members attending high school will help Boys II Men see the pride and responsibility associated with the organization. The final vision is to have our senior life timers graduate and to be recognized for completing one more step towards manhood.
