B-COOL PROGRAM FOR BOYS
The B-Cool Program for Boys is a self-directed development program that focuses on the unique needs of boys.
This one-year comprehensive in-school program (90 minutes each week) is tailored for primary, secondary or intermediate schools. B-Cool works within the whole social circle of young men, their parents, caregivers, teachers and youth supporters. Although the program typically runs for a full year, a specially designed program with a shorter duration has proven effective.
We equip boys from age seven and upwards to unravel the ‘boy code’ in which bottled-up emotions can lead to conflict, unbalanced relationships, and poor academic and behavioral performance. Boys learn to replace fists with words, trauma with talk, frustration with hope and fear with connection. They reach out to each other for support, and go inside to find the best of their human selves. B-Cool creates the right environment for them to show amazing leadership potential and fulfill their inherent promise.
B-Cool is built on decades of substantial research and practical application. The program embeds lasting changes and can benefit the entire school culture, homes and communities. It has already been the key to a sustained transformation in the lives of hundreds of boys in dozens of New Zealand schools.
Donations to the B-Cool Program go directly to boys’ education and development programs needed for schools and parents. We see the outcomes of troubled young men every day in the news. Your donation can help change that. B-Cool has been a tremendous success with over 700 boys in over 25 New Zealand schools.
For only $1500 you can help sponsor one boy – less than a $5 cup of coffee a day. The benefit to society is many times over in raising healthy and happy young men. Can you help boys to develop critical and positive emotional, social and life skills? All donations, large or small, are welcome.
