“My first year of Guy Thing was amazing. The first meeting, I didn’t know everyone, but there were familiar faces to greet me. Playing sports and talking with those guys was always hilarious and I can’t wait to come back.” – Participant

“No matter how committed parents are to teaching their sons how to make ethically sound choices and how to find a meaningful place in their community, that message has a unique sense of importance when a “Guy” learns it with a cadre of cool advisors and a great peer group.” –Parent
