Lions Cage: A New Program For Middle School Guys

May 01, 2017

2016-tylon-walkerFor many years we have offered an excellent program for middle school ladies called Warrior Princesses to address important issues facing this season of life. This program has been exceedingly popular with both girls and volunteers, so much so that we knew we needed an equivalent program for the guys. So, we are thrilled to announce Lions Cage Boys Club for our middle school boys!

This is a mentoring program geared toward urban boys living in a disadvantaged environment in grades 4-6 where they can learn skills that are relevant to their actual life experiences. We seek to help develop character and dignity in each young man through our partnership with a diverse group of dedicated mentors. We also want to increase their networks by connecting them to resources that will enhance their scope of life.

2017 Lions Cage Schedule (subject to change):
Jan. 7: Orientation (outing)
Jan. 21: The Four Faces of Manhood: an Overview of the principles of Manhood (Self-Defense)
Feb. 4: The King Face (A man’s leadership, worth, goals, and ambitions … made for greatness!)
Feb. 18: Field trip – TBD
Mar. 4: Warrior Face (What should a man take a stand for? Peer pressure, bullying, conflict resolution, and more – Self defense)
Mar. 18: Spring Break – no meeting
April 1: Friend Face (A man’s circle: How to make friends and navigate relationships – Self defense)
April 15: Lover Face (Why is Jesus and Love important to manhood – Easter weekend)
May 6: Field trip – TBD
May 20: End of year party (Parent & child)

Location: Bickford Community Center
Meeting Dates: 1st and 3rd Saturdays, 10:30a-12p
