Raising Boys to be Good Men - Crow Wing Energized Event

Crow Wing Energized


In an interactive format, this workshop will explore the process of male socialization – how boys learn about masculinity and the impacts their mental models of manhood have on their lives. Both the challenges and strengths of masculine messages will be explored, and ideas offered about how to raise boys to be good men.

Lowell Johnson is an educator with the ACEs Resiliency Coalition. His interests include healthy brain development through out the lifespan, and how gender socialization affects relationships in families and community life.

John Stiles is a pastor at First Lutheran Church in Brainerd. His interests include youth ministry and masculine spirituality as it relates to faith, sexuality and raising boys to men with a moral compass in today’s society.

Water Damage

This past month we have seen a influx of new clients. In the past two weeks alone, we have had 8 new clients and 47 total client appointments - and this is just at the Brainerd center! We are thankful that those who need our services are finding us, but an increase in client load means an increase in expenses.

At the same time, we are remodeling the front exterior of the building. Last week, workers uncovered a considerable amount of water damage, which will increase the costs significantly. We need your support this summer to offset these unforeseen costs.

We have a special matching donor opportunity available to you now through September 15th. All donations received or postmarked by that date will be matched up to $20,000. You can choose to give to client care costs or building renovation costs - either way, your gift will be DOUBLED during this time allowing you to make twice the impact.

Please consider giving while this matching offer is in effect.
