Our mission is to support young, often fatherless boys on their journey to manhood with support from a community of dedicated and trained male mentors who listen, encourage and believe in them.
Boys to Men Bay Area is fiscally sponsored by Boys to Men USA, a 501c(3) non-profit organization. We provide no-cost mentoring programs for boys to public, private and charter schools and community centers in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our circles typically include 10-20 boys and 4-5 mentors and last about an hour during school hours. We accept any child in our circles who identifies as "he or him".
Our mentor team is made up of unpaid volunteers who donate 2-3 hours per week of their time and energy to mentorship and administrative activities. Our mentors undergo comprehensive screening and background checks.
Boys To Men Bay Area currently has circles in two schools in Santa Cruz and one circle in San Francisco. We intend to grow this to 5 circles in 2020 as we increase our staffing, training and capacity.
