Mission

Boys to Men's mission is to give fatherless boys the male role models and guides they REQUIRE during their critical teenage years, as they transition from a boy into a man. Not just one man, but a community of mentors and role models who listen, accept, encourage and support teenage boys on their journey to become good men. No boy dreams of going to prison, dropping out of school or abusing drugs, yet MILLIONS DO. The problem… 33% of teenage boys are growing up in a fatherless home.

One year goals
1. Continue program growth by starting BTM programs at 5 new middle and high schools in the 2013-14 school year.
2. Increase revenue from our 100 Wave Challenge surfing event by 50%, from $100,000 to $150,000 (we actually raised $201,570:). The majority of our funding comes from this unique fundraising event.
3. Recruit and train 40 new mentors.
A. Develop mentor recruitment, training and retention programs.
B. Complete mentor training manual.
4. Document existing program evaluation and data collection methods.
Long term
1. A Boys to Men program in every middle school in San Diego (200).

A key factor in our strategy is to document the remarkable, positive changes we see every day in the boys participating in Boys to Men.

Our 5 year strategy is to:
Continue our current grow rate of 4 new schools a year.
Maintain the quality and impact of our current program.
Invest in program evaluation. developing additional data collection methods
This will require growing the number of boys we serve, maintaining our product quality and.


Develop the message, backed by the program evaluation data, proving the cost savings of BTM.

With minimal funding from mostly private sources we have created a model program that is being replicated around the world at the community level. The founding San Diego center has grown into an international organization in just eleven years. This program works and we are committed to give every boy the support he needs to find and achieve his dreams.

Worldwide we have completed 192 trainings with over 6,000 boys and men attending.

Our model is successful because it also supports men. An important aspect of our program is the passion and excitement men get from their involvement in Boys to Men. By developing a support structure for men, we have addressed the biggest challenge for all mentoring programs, attracting and retaining good men.

More coming soon

1. Number of boys served.
2. Short term impact---Participating boys will:
A. Have fewer school discipline issues.
B. Improve academic performance.
C. Reduce drug and alcohol abuse.
D. Reduce criminal and gang activities.

B. Reduce incarceration rates.

Four years ago, we started our after-school program with 6 boys at one school.

One year later, the Principal was so impressed, she asked for a BTM class, for her most at-risk boys, during school hours.

Today, we have 13 in-school meetings and 8 after-school meetings each week.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
