Making An Impact

Young Men

This is an opportunity to talk about very important topics that don't get talked about or addressed anywhere else.

~RSVP High School Participant

Fathers

As a young man, I was directed to channel aggressive masculinity, but it never felt like me. In this workshop, I met a group of men who could show up in their purest, most vulnerable selves. We parents learned about healthy masculinity and how it's vital to youths' growth. I thank Maine Boys to Men for creating such a safe place to learn from other men and to create productive conversations for all of those around us in our day-to-day lives.

~Tim Cole

The workshop provided an opportunity to more deeply explore gender differences and ways to promote respect for those differences.

~Anonymous

The openness that was created by the organizers and speakers created an environment to share with boundaries, but in a way that I could really let me guard down and be open to sharing and learning different views and perspectives. This program exceeded my expectations."

Coaches & Educators

We were thrilled to have Maine Boys to Men provide their Coaches & Educators Training to our staff. We hosted teachers and coaches from five districts, and several of my own staff said it was the most valuable professional development they had received in years. Following the training, three Falmouth teachers were inspired to start a Professional Learning Team devoted to implementing pieces of the Reducing Sexism and Violence Program (RSVP) curriculum into our work with students. It was a really valuable day and I left both motivated to enact changes and equipped with the resources to do so.

Family Members

Since my husband started to join the MB2M meetings, he changed his behavior. I realized that there is somebody in the shadow helping understand how a couple can engage in uncomfortable topics together, but doing so comfortably.
