Men on a Mission

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford’s Men on a Mission is a group of men from the greater Hartford region with a shared passion to shape the lives of young men.

Men on a Mission ensures young men in our Clubs have opportunities to learn responsibility, positive behavior, and develop good character through the Club’s Passport to Manhood program.

We’re excited to introduce the Ties That Bind Challenge.  For every Men on a Mission member who renews or joins with a $250 donation, we will donate a new necktie to a boy in the Passport program.  The Challenge will close on Father’s Day, June 21st.

Dressing for success is a hallmark activity of the Passport to Manhood program, including teaching young men how to tie a necktie.  The staff who run the program are mentors for the boys, providing a father figure that many do not have at home.

Did you have a childhood mentor?  Let us know when in the message section when you make your donation.

Giving young men positive support

Men on a Mission is a network of men, started in 2018, to help support the needs of young men in Hartford as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. With an annual gift of $250, this network provides funding to support the Club’s Passport to Manhood which exposes Hartford boys to positive male role models and teaches participants about personal hygiene, decision making, healthy relationships, conflict resolution and career exploration.

Congratulations to our 2019 Young Man of the Year, Dominic Mendez and Junior Young Man of the Year, Elias Remekie!
