Announcing our new Executive Director, Bruce King

We are thrilled to announce that Bruce King has joined us as our new Executive Director!

Bruce is an activist, advocate, and public speaker who has covered a host of issues around the state and nationally. Prior to joining Maine Boys to Men, Bruce was the Co-Executive Director of Maine Inside Out, an organization that uses theatre for social change in schools, prisons, and the wider community. He currently serves on the board of Maine Equal Justice and is a commissioner on Maine’s Permanent Commission on the Status of Racial, Indigenous, and Tribal Populations.

Bruce’s career history, lived experience, and genuine passion for empowering people to create safe, thriving communities makes him a wonderful fit to ensure Maine Boys to Men can meet the rising demand and need for our unique approach to violence prevention.

Bruce says, “I am so excited to step into this role with Maine Boys to Men. The work of this organization is crucial at this moment in time. I’m a deep believer that preventing the root causes of violence is the most prudent and important solution to mitigating harm. To be able to build upon the strong foundation that already exists at Maine Boys to Men is such a privilege. I can’t wait to meet many of you along the way.”

Please join us in wishing Bruce a warm welcome to this new role!
