Our Strategies

The Boys Initiative supports a number of strategies to help improve the lives and futures of boys, including:
  • More research regarding boys' developmental needs and learning styles, and greater public awareness of these differences.

  • Early intervention as a means to develop literacy skills and a positive attitude about school.

  • Mentoring and greater parental and community involvement.

  • More flexibility for educators in trying different techniques to reach boys.

  • Better efforts to meet the mental health needs of boys.

  • Educating policy makers about the need for specialized programs to boost boys' educational outcomes.

  • Creating a culture of support for boys.
