What Schools are saying about Boys Won’t Be Boys ….
“Mr. Tim Brown has been an unmatched asset at Eastgate Elementary School this year. Many people aspire to pour their knowledge and experience into young people of today but I have never seen a man so honest, transparent and dedicated to the growth of our future leaders.”
Ms. Renee L. Harris, Eastgate Elementary School Administrator
I have a Dream that young boys all over this country would be taught and encouraged to take the path less traveled and not use the excuses that they are Just Boys and Boys Will Be Boys.
I have a Dream that my book Boys Won’t Be Boys Living Uncommon in a Common World would become that movement that would start young boys on the path to becoming Responsible Sons, Responsible Fathers, Responsible Husbands and Responsible Leaders as examples for the next generation to follow.
I have a Dream that the Boys Won’t Be Boys project would be taught in schools, churches and Young Men Conferences all over this country.
I have a Dream that the Dreams of the Dreamers would not be deferred but instead would explode with Hope and increased Opportunity for even greater success.
I have a dream that the lessons in the book: Protect Your Name, Being an Uncommon Young-man, Respect for Elders, Friends with No Benefits and Young-man of Character and Integrity would become a positive way of life for young boys all over this country.
I have a Dream that we will see a new sense of hope and positive influences in our Boys as they desire not to be the best athlete, entertainer, and reality TV star but instead be the best student, be the best school leader, be the best Gentleman, and be the Next Great Leader.
Crisis in our Community: There is a need
Plan of Action: We will partner with local school districts, churches, athletic teams, and neighborhood community and recreation centers to work with small groups of boys using the teaching points from the book Boys Won’t Be Boys. for young men to be accountable and expected to prepare themselves for leadership of their families and the community in which they live. We are slowly facing a lack of real male leadership. Young men need be taught the value of being respected as a man of honor and integrity. Read more…
