​Boys 2 Men Project

Boys2Men, which started as a church-based
project in Redditch, has been given a major boost
by a local entrepreneur who has provided funding
to enable the project leader, Phil Williams, to work
full time, enabling the scheme to reach more
boys and their dads. 

Boys2Men works to develop a closer relationship
between fathers and sons by running a six week
long course with fun and challenging activities,
including two camping weekends. Phil explains:
“We take the fathers and sons out of their comfort
zone. It’s amazing how the relationship changes
and improves when they have to work together to
overcome different challenges.” 

The charity started as a partnership between the YMCA and Christchurch Community
Project in Matchborough. The new funding has enabled the project to be set up as an
independent charity and, as well as Phil’s full-time post, a fundraiser will work with the
charity one day a week. 

Phil continues: “Until now we have only be able to work with two schools each year.
Thanks to our new funding we are looking to work with six local schools this year,
reaching ten fathers and sons with each course and are hoping to expand to schools
in Birmingham.”

“Our project is based around lines in the last verse of Malachi: ‘And he shall turn the heart
of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers.’ The relationship
between father and son is hugely important and we’ve seen on many occasions how
improving this relationship can have the potential to transform a whole family.” 

Please pray for the Boys2Men project as it enters this new phase of its life and pray for
all the families who will benefit as a result.
