Developing driven, engaging, resilient, and responsible boys and young men.

Who we are
Partnership for Boys is a national nonprofit education organization that partners with parents and families, schools and school systems, and centers and mentors to develop driven, engaging, resilient, and responsible boys and young men.
We Believe
We believe that it is necessary to change and improve the conditions surrounding boys so that they can thrive.

We do this in partnership with parents and caregivers, educators, mentors, and others responsible for the well-being of boys.

What We Do

Through our programs and services, we build boys’ emotional core and broaden their leadership capacity and social skills.

We also offer services for parents, families, and practitioners that improve their ability to support boys and young men during their journey into manhood.

What We Know

Boys often begin struggling both academically and socially as early as 2nd grade.

Two major reasons are (1) changes in learning expectations associated with high-stakes tests that begin in the 3rd grade and (2) changes in the behavioral expectations resulting in adults discouraging and penalizing previously-accepted behavior.

Adolescent boys also change communication styles, sometimes resulting in difficulty engaging with peers and adults.
