Mission Statement

To create happy and productive households by mentoring parents and their sons how to cooperatively live together so that everyone enjoys more trust, teamwork and love.

Description

The Young Men's Ultimate Weekend was founded by Dr. Mark Schillinger in 2000. Mark was inspired by Brad Leslie who started a weekend mentoring program for young men in Vancouver, Canada in 1990. Mark took his son to this program and when he returned he knew he needed help raising his son as a single-parent. He put out a call for help in the Bay Area and with the commitment and cooperation of dozens of caring mothers, fathers, and mentors, the YMUW 501(c)3 Public Benefit Corporation was established.

At our first Young Men's Ultimate Weekend in Fairfax California, over 200 young men showed up to receive their initiation. Expecting possibly a few dozen young men, that experience turned out to be an initiation for the board members and their volunteer mentors as well! Since that event, YMUW initiations have been held in Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Sonoma, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego.
