Our Philosophy

all boys are born with a unique gift for the world, and

healthy men are made through mentorship.

We have 3 simple values we hold close to our heart

Nature is the ultimate teacher

We look to our external and internal environments for inspiration, wisdom, and guidance. Finding our place in nature is both fun and healthy.

Growth requires discomfort, not pain

Balancing healthy risk with safety is where this work shines. Finding and knowing our personal edges is empowering.

Integration brings it home

Ongoing support and engagement creates lasting change in us and in our communities. The real work happens everyday.

“The future is not out there in front of us, but inside us.”
– Joanna Macy

The Bridge

Recognizing that western society fails to properly initiate boys into manhood, Journeymen creates these necessary transformational experiences for adolescent boys to discover, refine, and amplify their authentic selves.

We build compassionate and inspired young men through nature-based rites of passage, long-term mentoring, and community engagement.

“One of the most reliable predictors of whether a boy will succeed or fail in high school rests on a single question: does he have a man in his life to look up to?” – Newsweek Magazine
