Duration: 7 weeks
The Boys' Group allows boys aged 8 to 11 years to experience being with a diverse group of men who role model how to grow into a good man, to be masculine without using violence, to be compassionate toward women and themselves and one another, and also demonstrate showing respect for others. Each week, the boys participate in activities that challenge them to grow in self-control and earn trust through the power of keeping their word. The boys learn strategies and skills for dealing with conflict in a non-aggressive manner. This program is fun and active, brimming with activities.
