National Affinity Network
|The Boys Initiative launched its National Affinity Network in March 2011. The purpose of the network is twofold: to facilitate the creation of local groups of parents, teachers and others with an interest in boy's issues and to help insure their success through information exchange and other resources.
Acting independently, many such local groups throughout the country have already established themselves as respected advocates for boy's issues within their communities.
While the Network has been an important element of the Initiative's program plan since its inception, the stimulus for fast-tracking its implementation has been the apparent need for it; since its launch in February 2011, the Initiative has been contacted by a number of individuals throughout the country who have either participated in the development of such groups or wish to initiate one.
What the Network DoesThe Network is web-based. TBIN will serve as its national coordinator and information clearinghouse. Among other things, the Network will provide the following resources to local organizations that participate in it:
