Mission Statement

One of America's greatest current challenges is reversing the steep decline in the intellectual performance of many boys enrolled in public schools. Through Boys Transitioning, Inc. is committed to identifying many of the academic, physical, emotional, and psychological transitions boys must navigate during their formative years by suggesting new strategies to assist boys in negotiating these radically different stages in life.

Description

With our boys, there must be a clear understanding of the crisis they are facing, how multiple factors converge in replicating their crises, and what each of us can do to begin to intervene. In the discovery of strategies, we can all participate in the solution.

A growing dropout problem, the downward trend in standardized test scores, and the dramatic increase in violence leads one to believe that far too many of today's boys have either lost interest or hope while others are simply out of control.

How to motivate & teach at-risk students is a universal academic problem that demands to be addressed as we move further into the 21st Century. What can be done to challenge the culture of a school and its adjoining community?
