We Know Boys


5th and 6th grade boys regularly meet with their mentors. Character education is essential!

Boys Love Dirt

Boys aren't afraid to get their hands dirty while learning!

Boys need to move!

We know that boys are naturally active — they need exercise through sports, play, and yes, even yoga!


Boys are great at channeling their natural energy into becoming better makers and problem solvers.

Hands & Brains

Boys need to work their hands and their brains at the same time.

Hands-On Learning

Boys need to touch, feel, and experience everything — EVEN MATH!
