The work of the Center is not a “leg up” but a way of helping all children so that all children can succeed. Because boys are consistently falling behind at an alarming rate in the U.S., girls’ lives are negatively affected. Signs of this decline include increased failure rates among males as future husbands and fathers of our children; in classrooms, classroom management time (mostly to help languishing boys) usurps learning time for girls; in neighborhoods, we see males becoming increasingly violent and dangerous. A number of the friends of the Center, such as the therapist Dr. Adie Goldberg, who has three daughters, has seen how every male who is hurting or failing can harm the trajectory of girls. The passionate cause of helping boys is as urgent for her and other parents of daughters because female safety and empowerment cannot happen when millions of boys are failing to succeed.
