Altogether Boys

Clinical research indicates that middle school is perhaps the most delicate time in a boy’s development and that the choices we make for our sons now, the support we give or do not give them, will shape the men they become tomorrow. The Altogether Boys program helps boys find courage to tackle tough situations, the strength to be sensitive to complex issues, and the intelligence to build strong friendships. This is what it takes to succeed in a 21st Century economy, and this is what it takes to stay healthy and happy in a changing world.

Altogether Boys: A Program That Helps Boys Find a Way to Belong

This 8-week course, developed in conjunction with the Men’s Resource Center of West Michigan, is available to schools, church groups, summer camps, sports teams, and other organizations interested in making boys’ emotional and psychosocial well-being a priority. In it, boys develop the tools to:

  • identify, understand, and experience their emotions in sophisticated and intelligent ways
  • become aware of how we influence and are influenced by our shared culture
  • discover strength in strong peer communities, and build these communities
  • recognize opportunities to make healthy choices
  • develop a strong, healthy and balanced self-esteem

Boys in our educational program build these skills with dynamic mentors, who facilitate complicated concepts in an exciting, fun and meaningful environment. Boys leaving our program have been taught to recognize how frustration builds, how healthy friendships work, how to understand social pressure, and how to make good choices. Perhaps, most importantly, they know how to reach out when they need support and guidance.
