Their school dropout rates are climbing. Their college completion rates are falling. Resources for male adolescents are lacking. Their health education programs are limited.
The mission of “The Boys Initiative” is to shed light on the challenges that boys and young men face today, to foster dialogue and debate about these timely topics, and to collaborate on solutions with the champions who are committed to the future of our nation’s youth.
Men were once young men, adolescents and boys. The adult who emerges is shaped by all phases of life, but most profoundly by the experiences of boyhood and adolescence. To ensure that adult males lead meaningful and successful lives, we must focus first on boys and adolescents, and how they are shaped by their experiences during these periods of their lives. Our outreach, media, education, and advocacy programs focus on boys and young men from K-12 through post-secondary education.
Our goal is to partner and build coalitions with organizations that are devoted to the future and well-being of our nation’s youth. Please support our efforts!
