Boys Becoming Great Men (BBGM)
"Empowering Boys to Become Great Men"
Our Mentoring Team
BBGM Mentoring Team consists of dedicated and committed men from a variety backgrounds and professions desiring to positive impact the lives of young boys. They represent various professions, attorneys, educators, mental health clinicians, coaches and businessmen.
We are thankful to our partnerships. These partnerships are helping us provide mentoring services to undeserved young boys in the Howard County and surrounding communities. We are increditably grateful to Howard County' Gov't the Youth Engaging Programming (YEP f) grant award and Bridgeway Community Church's community empowerment grant award.
For the last 10 years, the Center for Creative Life and Learning, Inc. has provided services mainly to women and children specifically girls. However, there has been growing requests from families and parents in the last 5 years for mentoring services for young boys and their sons.
In our community and other communities in Maryland there are very few mentoring programs for young boys especially from single parent homes, poor families with limited resources and absent of a positive male influence. Because of these issues, often these young boys become statistics; school drops, members of gangs, homes in jail or juvenile facilities, and even some suffer early deaths.
To empower young boys with essential tools and life skills to help them reach their full potential, achieve mental and emotional wellness, academic success, discover their path in life and evolve as great leaders and men.
