Passport to Manhood Celebrates

Passport to Manhood members wrapped up their first quarter of sessions with a return visit to the Pasadena Humane Society on November 8, where they presented doggy chew ropes they made for their service project to the shelter. Following a quick visit with the animals, our kids enjoyed a celebratory lunch at Home Town Buffet.

“We celebrated our achievement of not only giving back to the Humane Society but of the journey the boys took through the teachings of Passport to Manhood,” said Aquatics Director James Granados, who runs the program. .  The 12 week course the Boys chose to take discussed things like responsibility, values, future careers, respect towards authority, etc., etc.

Passport to Manhood addresses the challenges our male Club members, ages 11-14, face as they transition from boyhood to manhood. During the 12-week course, our members explored topics ranging from ethics, decision-making, wellness, fatherhood, employment and careers, cooperation and conflict, to diversity.
