Life For Today's Teenagers Is Complex
When you grew up, the hard times defined who you were. As a result of your hard work and commitment, you've managed to create an environment for your son to live, learn, and succeed in life.
Today's society however, presents many new challenges and teenage boys are struggling. In addition to all you provide, teenage boys need good men and women who can actively and adequately guide them through their most challenging life transition. Without this ...

Boys need guidance and clear direction to develop a healthy vision of their new role as young men, otherwise, they may never grow out of their boyish behavior.
In some cases, it’s even possible they could succumb to negative influences that can lead to withdrawal from family and school, aggression, addiction, and mental health issues.
Guide your son on his transition from boy behavior to become a respectful, healthy, considerate & confident young man
Although most men are aware that they need to do something to help their boys make this transition, many have no idea WHEN or WHERE to begin. Some try to gather friends, work out a program but balk at the reality of spending $2-5,000 just for the logistics and accommodation.

The truth is that any reason you give yourself for not taking action is really an excuse. It's either you run the risk of him building an identity based on guesswork from peers, borrowed images, media stereotypes, and the fantastical heroes of popular culture OR, you can Take Action!
The good news is, the moment you sign up for BrosJourney activities, retreats or ROP programs, you'll begin an intentional journey that eliminates excuses and establishes communication with your son for his journey to becoming a young man.

BrosJourney provides retreats, rites of passage, camps and related programs for teenage boys as they transition from boy behavior, into respectful, healthy, considerate, and confident young men.
"A modern-day rite of passage is achieved when parents and the community create and participate in experiences which are perceived to be transformative by youth and, in fact, offer them increased status within the community and facilitate their healthy transition through adolescence” (Blumenkrantz, 1996, p. 21).
