In 1999, I realized that the reason why young men like my son Gabe were falling short of achieving their true potential was that the adults around them had no roadmap showing them how to overcome the challenges of parenting in this rapidly spreading era of information technology. Since then, this world-wide epidemic of digital dominance is causing heart breaking disconnections between parents and their sons.
In 2000, I decided to focus my life on restoring my relationship with Gabe. With the insight from many wise mentors, researching tribal family dynamics and with the help of hundreds of devoted volunteers, I created the non-profit, Young Men’s Ultimate Weekend
. It’s a personal growth wilderness adventure camp for young men ages 13-20.
Now, after 50 rite of passage initiations, YMUW has transformed the lives of thousands of young men - just like your son. This outrageously fun event has helped young men become more self-motivated to intelligently find their own way through the demands of the adult world.
At the YMUW, I’ve spent countless hours in the trenches with young men. I have been mentoring them to overcome their concerns and fears about growing up. The method I use with young men has assisted them to become happier, healthier and more independent.
With all of my experience, I’ve broken the “young men’s” code and figured out how to help your son become more resourceful and responsible for his own well-being.
NOTE: While your son attends this epic event, I lead a “boot - camp” style workshop for the parents in a nearby hotel. I show them how to masterfully mentor their son so that he can calmly, clearly and confidently handle his transition from boyhood to adulthood.
By the end of this practical workshop, you’ll have learned how to more effectively use your authority and influence in a way that minimizes conflict and maximizes cooperation.
