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.

It Works

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 creating uncertainty in our communities and is a troubling prospect for us all. We are committed to keeping our BTM family safe and well-informed while doing what we can to help flatten the growth curve of this virus. 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:

With regards to our programming, we are aligned with the directives issued by the Health Ministers and Provincial Medical Health Officers in the provinces we are active in.

Please note:

  • We have suspended all our after-school group mentoring circles (boys and girls) until Monday, March 30 or later.
  • We have postponed our Adventure Weekend in Québec, scheduled for April 17-19, and will announce new dates when it is deemed safe to host it.
  • We have cancelled the April 22nd screening of the movie Brotherhood 1926 in Québec.

    In the interim, our program directors will continue to deliver group mentoring circles through our Zoom video conference platform. We are also exploring the possibility of hosting a virtual screening of Brotherhood 1926 as well and will communicate additional information as soon as it becomes available.

    Times like these provide us with a unique opportunity to manifest the very best in our shared humanity. Let us ensure that this is true, here and now.
