The Problem

No boy chooses to grow up without a dad, yet MILLIONS do. These boys are far more likely to drop out of school, abuse drugs or go to prison than boys with fathers.

Our Program

We offer boys a community where they can hear other boys, and men, share their stories and understand they are NOT ALONE in their struggles.

Boys are making better choices resulting in higher grades and less discipline issues. Hear from the Boys, Parents, and Schools and see what all the buzz is about.

Teenage years are the critical window of opportunity to empower boys to follow their dreams. Join us and invest in our boys today, and the payback will last a lifetime.

In alignment with Canada’s nation-wide efforts to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made changes to the way we support youth during this time. See below for a message from our Executive Director, David Cordes, and check our Facebook page for up-to-date information regarding our programs.

Dear BTM Canada Staff, Volunteer Mentors, Members and Supporters,

We recognize that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is changing the way we work, live and interact collectively. We are committed to keeping our BTM family safe and well-informed while doing everything we can to help flatten the growth curve of this pandemic. As such, we urge everyone to follow the recommendations issued by the Government of Canada. For up-to-date information related to COVID-19, including steps you can take to protect yourself and others, please visit: COVID-19 Government of Canada.

With regards to our programming, we are fully aligned and compliant with the directives issued by the Health Ministers and Provincial Medical Health Officers across Canada.

For now, we have:

  • Suspended all our after-school group mentoring circles (boys and girls) until the start of the 2020-2021 school year
  • Postponed all our Adventure Weekend and training retreats until it is deemed safe to resume them

    In the interim, we have moved all our programming and mentor training online through our secure Zoom platform. We are currently hosting 8 virtual circles a week for all our members and will launch our virtual Mentor Training program on April 11. As additional virtual circle facilitators are trained and accredited, we will expand our online offerings to reach even more youth across the nation, providing safe places for them to connect socially and emotionally.

    Times like these provide us with a unique opportunity to manifest the very best in our shared humanity. Let us continue to expand our hearts and minds to embrace the possibilities moving forward that this pandemic has revealed.

    In Service,

    David Cordes
    Executive Director
