Boys to Men Trainings will take place near Houston.The boys arrive on a Friday night and leave mid-day Sunday. During the weekend, they are paired with a mentor who will also mentor the boy after the weekend, spending time with the boy and bringing the boy to group meetings and outings.
Transition in a Wild or Primitive Setting
The isolation of the natural setting removes participants from the routines and patterns of their lives so that they can “re-create” themselves. They have the opportunity to let go of old patterns that might no longer serve them. They start fresh, discover new, more mature qualities, and learn and adopt new responsibilities and roles.
The participant has an opportunity to reflect on their new status and to adjust to the enormous changes, which can be exciting, scary, challenging, and confusing all at once. The participant’s time away gives the community time to adjust to the changes as well. When the participant returns as an “adult,” the community is also ready to accept him as changed; as a new member of society

Boys To Men Texas “Rites Of Passage Adventure Weekend”
4/12/2013 – 4/14/2013
BOYS TO MEN TEXAS has developed a life changing weekend initiation experience, where boys are invited to look at what is not working and to embrace what is working in their lives. Throughout the weekend, they learn to trust themselves and each other, as well as the staff that supports them through the process. The boys learn skills that allow them to become leaders among their peers. They take risks by being different, telling the truth, and sharing their feelings.
The ROPAW is for boys age 13 to 17. The Boys To Men program is based on a proven and successful program that actually starts with adult men mentors who model integrity, respect, compassion, accountability, and responsibility. Through a series of carefully facilitated processes, each boy discovers something of the scope of his own humanity. Boys are challenged and supported in new ways. They gain a deeper understanding of their own integrity, courage, respect, compassion, and leadership.
