Respect and Resilience
On a daily basis, boys and young men are challenged to be tough without being violent, to be tolerant without seeming weak. Developing a strong sense of self is imperative to helping boys learn to stand up for themselves as well as to resist the internal and external pressures to bully others. This group will promote an open dialogue regarding what it means to be a “man.” Group discussions will emphasize strength of character rather than physical strengths and encourage boys to recognize similarities and value diversities within their peer group. Groups will meet for eight weeks, one hour weekly session
(Boys aged 9-12 and 13-17)

Groups will meet for eight weeks, one hour weekly session.

We welcome your input on choosing the best time to hold our groups. If a number of families express interest in an earlier start time, we are more than happy to consider creating an afterschool group. The above times have been chosen to accommodate the typical family’s work schedule. Please feel free to contact us with your suggestions. It is our goal to be flexible.
