Mentoring Young Men to:
*Give and get respect.
*Develop supportive relationships
*Channel their energy constructively
*Become confident and independent
*Trust themselves and others
*Discover their own values

Young men don’t need to be “fixed.” They know in their hearts what’s right for them. YMUW mentors are confident consistent role models.
Our mentors lead young men to discover who they are and teach values that promote motivation, communication and cooperation.

Purpose of the Weekend

To provide young men with a weekend filled with incredible fun and challenges, while building a foundation for a confident and successful adulthood, through learning the importance of teamwork, developing a sense of accomplishment and acquiring leadership skills.

In the best of circumstances, every adolescent male faces a vast array of stressful changes: new relationships, greater expectations from family and community, a rapidly changing body, the need to communicate clearly and an uncertain future simmering in a stew of testosterone. He faces the formidable foes of alcohol, drugs, gang violence, anxiety and depression.

All of these challenges often occur in the absence of a full-time father or a father figure. Is it any wonder that studies state many young men, regardless of socio-economic background, feel sadness and even fear at the prospect of becoming adults? Research shows that adolescence is a critical stage for a young man's future success and happiness. Unfortunately, most young men are not being mentored and are being misguided by their friends and the media.

The Young Men’s Ultimate Weekend directly resolves the root cause of these problems: the lack of initiation and mentoring. We’ve helped over two thousand young men become respectable and responsible for themselves and for others.

The young men who attend our Weekend come from diverse socio-economic, racial and cultural backgrounds. We do not inquire about their sexual orientation. We are non-sectarian; we do not espouse any institutional religion. More than 50% of the youth attending the YMUW originate from divorced homes, however, our program is intended for all young men, ages 13-20.

Weekend Registration is only $200, no one turned away because of lack of funds, scholarships available.

The YMUW is as life-changing for volunteers as for the young men.
