ReBuild Real Men
ReBuild Real Men is a Ripple of One initiative and was birthed out of a conviction that the male crisis in our country needed to be addressed. The void of male mentors is greatly due to limited means for recruiting and training them.
The 2 programs of ReBuild Real Men are…
I. ReBuild Leadership: Men are encouraged to enroll in a 6 session training program designed to enable and motivate them to mentor other males. When fully developed, ReBuild Real Men will be structured to have mature Christian men in place to mentor males of all ages; taking them where they are, helping them understand and pursue God’s best for their lives. Through on-going men’s groups, growth area training as well as job skills development accompanied by work experience opportunities, participants will see what a Real Man, God’s man, looks like - instead of the secularized and feminized version that has evolved in our society.
*ReBuild Leadership is in the development stages targeted to be fully launched in March 2014 with the first group of leaders going through the initial mentor training. This group will help further develop the scope of the program as more men become available for the task of pouring into the lives of other males. Once mature, it will be extended to neighboring counties then throughout the state and beyond.
II. Manhood: Manhood is a 5 session class that benefits all struggling males. This class lays the foundation for additional masculine growth and recognition of the need for other men in their lives. Multiple classes have already been offered in Oconee and Anderson Counties. A participant completing the course “get’s his Man Card” and is positioned for future leadership or continuing progression in their male journey to significance as husbands, fathers and community members. The Manhood participants are usually referred from various agencies, which provide services to struggling men in
Oconee County. *Future Manhood classes will be regularly scheduled.
