The Boys Initiative, an outgrowth of the Men’s Health Network, will take a broad look at the problems boys and men are having.

An explainer from the blog creators:

Welcome to our new blog. The Boys Initiative is an outgrowth of the Boys and Schools program, launched by the Men's Health Network in 2006. The mission of the Boys Initiative is to ensure that boys are prepared for rewarding and fulfilling lives that include economically valuable employment, successful relationships and marriage, responsible fatherhood, contribution to their communities and emotional health and happiness. The Boys Initiative is a novel effort to shed light on alarming trends in recent years pertaining to boys' health and well-being. These trends are approaching crisis proportions. In the coming weeks we will be substantially expanding our programs and reach. We invite you to stay tuned, post your comments on our work as well as your own, and visit our website www.boysandschools.com.
