My name is Richard K. Dunn, Sr., founder of Men2Boys Mentoring Program, a Non-Profit 501(C)3 Tax Exempt Organization. Men2Boys has been operating in Broward County Florida since April 2010. Our mission is to provide adult male Mentoring (i.e. Group Mentoring and “Teen Coaching”) to boys and young males in our community and the surrounding area. To encourage, empower and equip; to educate, energize and elevate young males to make responsible choices, smart decisions, recognize their passions and discover their purpose
My purpose is to inspire a program that provides a generation of boys and young males the information, influence, advice and guidance through mentoring discussions, workshops, seminars, conferences, events and activities.
In many cases today, through struggles and failures in and out of the classroom, young males develop self-destructive habits. They are then ill-equipped to identify and eliminate these bad habits, and therefore they lose faith in the possibilities for their futures. This loss of hope leads to negative consequences.
Men2Boys’ goal is to establish inter-generational communication that focuses on the responsibility of making positive and productive choices and decisions; every day choices and decisions, long and short-term choices and decisions.
Our goal is to also promote the Importance of Education. Academic achievement and student success, meeting short term and long-term goals in education is a direct focus of Men2Boys.
We also promote the idea of selecting and creating positive and productive friendships and eliminating our negative friendships. Additionally, we advise and guide young males on how to manage the relationships in their lives and to identify important relationships from casual relationships.
Men2Boys is a male only (single gender) program to ensure focus, to emphasize seriousness and to create bonds. We are also responding to the growing number of young males being raised in fatherless homes. Many of these young males are falling through the cracks at school or are already entangled with the juvenile justice system.
We provide adult male Mentoring for young males, most of whom are facing a turbulent transition to manhood and we offer a positive support system to help them avoid the pitfalls that will derail their lives and, in many cases, destroy their futures.
