Tucson, Arizona
Job Type


The mission of Boys to Men Tucson (BTMT) is to strengthen our communities by nurturing intentional spaces for boys, men, and masculine-identified folks to practice honest and mindful relationships, with a vision that all boys have access to safe and loving men. We humbly approach the work of mentoring and are dedicated to a future where:

  • Society views masculinity in a radically different way and men are able to express all parts of themselves
  • Boys and masculine-identified youth all have safe, trusted, and healthy role models outside of the home
  • Patriarchy, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and all systemic forms of power are eradicated, and therefore the violence toward marginalized populations is eradicated

We believe our intergenerational approach which addresses social inequities and cultural trauma in supporting men to mentor boys in southern Arizona communities contributes to this future vision. Our relationship to community is the backbone of our work, which is for anyone who identifies as masculine: whether they are boys, men, male, trans, non-binary, or any other masculine gender identity. We are committed to accountability, community, growth, equity (anti-racism), healthy masculinity, and fun--insisting on joy in our work! Boys to Men Tucson would like to become a national model for community mentoring programs. Find more information about BTMT at
