Passport to Manhood

Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior.

Each participant receives a “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. Each of the program’s 14 sessions use interactive activities to focus on a specific aspect of character and manhood. It also includes a service project where boys learn the importance of giving back to the community.

GOAL: To teach and promote responsibility, reinforce positive behavior and develop character in adolescent males

WHY: The passage from boyhood to manhood is challenging, requiring adolescent males to understand and manage many issues and transitions. Passport to Manhood addresses critical issues that young men face during this time, such as ethics, decision-making, wellness, ideas about fatherhood,
employment and careers, cooperation and conflict, diversity, relationships and
self-esteem.

WHO: Male Club members ages 8-12 and 13-17

WHAT: Passport to Manhood is a 14-session program that concentrates on specific aspects of manhood through highly interactive activities. Each Club member participant is issued his own “passport” to underscore his personal journey of maturation and growth. One session is conducted each week.

The Makerspace powered by Infosys Foundation USA participated in a contest with BGCA, combining art with STEM - the Fine Arts/Makerspace interdisciplinary project.

our members created their own tiles. Together they created a laser etched community arts project over the course of several weeks.

Working with members of the Asylum Hill Club, all ages, from the Early Learning Center up to staff members. Each participant designed their own translucent tile using either a computer design program or markers and paper to represent themselves in a positive light.

We hope you enjoy these creations as much as we do! We love the creativity and talent of our members and are happy to be able to share it with the community.
