Program Elements

Program elements include weekly in-school group meetings, skill building classes every other weekend, community service projects, recreational activities, and an annual weekend retreat.

During the weekly group meetings at the schools, the young men can expect mentors will serve as role models who:

  • Provide an environment where they feel supported, listened to, and valued.

  • Demonstrate integrity, accountability, compassion, and respect.

  • Allow them to speak their truth and encourage them to take responsibility for their choices.

  • A setting where they realize they are not alone in their struggles and there are others who deal with similar challenges.

  • The weekly meetings combine leadership opportunities, peer mentoring, and self-esteem building exercises.

  • All meetings are facilitated by one or more Stronger Sons mentors
