Today @timbarrus asked us on Twitter: “So how do we reach boys who have every single male role model walk out on them?”

@goodmenproject replied: “We change the systems that cause that to happen in the first place. We mentor boys who need male role models in their lives.
We give them the agency needed to become men on their own. One thing we know. We can’t give up on them.”

Tim wrote back: “Giving Up  Is Not An Option. Frustration Sometimes. Hopeless Never. Every boy I work with has something worthwhile inside him. U Nurture It.”

If there is ever a reason why we have the difficult conversations we do, this is why. Because every boy…every man…every human…has something worthwhile inside them.

There are a lot of things that are difficult to talk about. Most of them we talk about here: Male Stereotypes. Raising boys. Raising girls. Marriage. Divorce. Addiction. Custody. Birth. Death. Sex. Pornography. Human Trafficking. Abuse. Racism. LGBT issues. Gender Wars. Business Ethics. War. Prison. Male Sexuality.

We talk about those things so we can change the conversations about them. We talk about those things so we can get to common ground. We talk about those things so we can change the way things are, into the way can see the world to be.

We talk about these things so that every boy can grow up with a male role model.

We have over 15,000 posts, all looking at different answers to the question: “What does it mean to be a good man in the 21st century? We’ve not only had amazing discussions here on our website, but we’ve inserted ourselves into every conversation about men we could find. We don’t believe there is anyone out there doing what we’re doing. Certainly not at the size and scale and depth and breadth that we are.

And so, we’re looking for people who want to help even more. People who want to be charter members of this organization. People who want to help lead the conversation and not just follow it.
