We talked with Joe Sigurdson today! Joe is the co-founder of the "Boys to Men Mentoring Network" a nonprofit organization supporting boys who are challenged in today's society. With 33 centers across the globe, the vision of Boys to Men is "to create communities of men who teach, support, mentor and encourage boys to become compassionate and accountable men." Joe was a teenage father. He and Nancy, his wife of 39 years, have two children and seven grandchildren. An active member of Alcoholics Anonymous with 27 years of sobriety, he has been active in the Mankind Project doing interpersonal work for the past 21 years. His experiences in both these programs have given him insight to what he believes is lacking in our society, especially teenage boys. He has worked with thousands of men and boys around the world. He knows that inside every boy is a desire to be a good man. Boys to Men has developed its approach in helping boys become better men by listening, accepting and admiring them for who they are. These principles are the result of Joe’s path through life and recovery.
