The Men's Circle

Not taking for granted the shoulders we stand upon that got us here.

Now that we are here... (where are we going) and (what do we do)?

The Men’s Circle is a safe space to simply be men. We talk about family, fatherhood, sports, struggles, and strategies. We honor the past while preparing for the future. Together we learn to acknowledge, accept, embrace, and empower in all aspects of our lives. We acknowledge our good, bad, and ugly. We accept when we aren’t living up to our responsibilities and pivot. We embrace the newness in different aspects of life. But most of all, we empower each other and the next generation of those to come. Join the Men’s Circle and help build a community of men driven, determined, and dedicated to breaking barriers and building a legacy through leadership strategies.
