This is the time for change regarding our youth ages 8-18. Our youth have gotten away from us. They have been guided by their own and this is not a way of life. Boys 2 Bowties plan to be the epitome of a true mentor program for the youth, a “big brother” if you may. Boys 2 Bowties will not focus on religion, academics or household criteria. Boys 2 Bowties will focus on driving each individual child to be more respectful to themselves and others. Boys 2 Bowties will focus on the favor of being multicultural and teaching each of our youth to be responsible for the actions you do today vs. the effects of you tomorrow. This organization will focus on the understanding of respect, humility, and peace. We will focus on what is good in each person that enters the program and drive them to be the best at what you do in life.
Boys 2 Bowties, the representation itself, will open new doors for the young males in the program. The mission statement, ‘To respect every person that I come in contact with regardless of age or culture, and hold myself accountable for my own actions’, will be an oath embedded in every member’s life. We will be teaching integrity, perception of self by walking it daily. Not only will Boys 2 Bowties change the ever-growing youth, we will change every other age group through due process, growing to be citizens and future leaders of the nation. It is Boys 2 Bowties goal to have each member reform from ways of violence and mindlessness to becoming upstanding citizens. We believe this will cause a chain-reaction within our communities towards many helpful ways to reform.
The bowtie is a representation of transformation, as it appears to resemble a butterfly. The butterfly is a metamorphic winged beauty that is transformed from a caterpillar to a butterfly; this is nothing short of miraculous. The caterpillar must first digest itself to become a butterfly. To add more, the term butterfly effect is in which a small change at one place in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere. This is what the bowtie represents in Boys 2 Bowties. For others, it is a symbol of knowledge, as it reflects a depiction of an open book. We will transform each boy to be a respectable man, while making small changes and affecting others to do the same.
Boys 2 Bowties. will change one child at a time, ensuring future generations are the best they can be.
