Our community mentoring approach is drawing high praise from school principals, administrators and teachers for its documented ability to improve the academic performance, attendance and attitude, and reduce discipline issues, expulsion and dropout rates, of their most at-risk boys.
School records show boys who participated for one school year improved their GPA by an average of 27% and their discipline incidents declined by 85%.
The results from a University of San Diego case study of our program shows,
“Boys to Men played a significant role in improving the lives and educational trajectories of the boys that participated in the program.”
While we have developed multiple methods to evaluate our impact (see sidebar), no surveys, statistics or words can ever document the remarkable positive changes our mentors and staff see in our boys on a weekly basis.
See the amazing transformation yourself.
