Why The 1 For All Project?
A boys dream of becoming a superhero needs to be fostered rather than squashed. Our goal is for every boy to be self-aware, find his inner power and aspire to make the world a better place in his own unique way.
Statistics show boys are faced with the same challenges and difficulties as girls. They struggle with friendships, family relationships, sexuality, self worth, body image, risky behaviors, and academic expectations, however they and their support systems are very different.
Boys are less likely to seek help, less likely to talk about emotions and feelings, and are trying to find their place in the constantly changing world where social cues and development can be very different from what they see and read. As they try to figure out what it means to be a man most often the community is missing the mark on how to guide them.
At The 1 For All Project we feel that everyone is better off if boys are better understood and they are encouraged to become more emotionally literate.
