The Building Men program is designed to reach young men who would like to make a difference in their lives but may lack the direction needed. These basic skills that these young men are trying to improve can be for academics, behavior, and/or social skills. The mission of the program is to teach the skills needed in these areas as well as present options for success.
We meet to discuss issues that they are facing in the classroom and at home. We try to create an atmosphere of brotherhood and unity to help support each other. Once a month, we will have a group activity to continue to team build. Students have to qualify for these activities through the skills and advice given in the weekly sessions. We are also working on a community project to help build a sense of responsibility and appreciation in the hopes that they will carry it on beyond this year.
