“My 21 year-old son did the Weekend when he was 16 and it changed his life. He now has and honors a family of his own.”
Mostly what I sensed was a lightness of heart, as though a weight had been lifted from him.I wanted to say thank you. There is a great need for your work and effort.”
“My son attending this Weekend was the best decision I have ever made AND stood by! It is absolutely amazing what the YMUW does in two nights to change the lives of these young men.”

“My teen son was verbally aggressive, giving me the finger and thinking he did not have to do anything he didn’t want to. This behavior has largely disappeared, being replaced with cooperation and increasing personal responsibility. He has become open and caring.”
“My son, Erik, is now 21 and proudly serving in the USAF - a confident, articulate, young man. Our whole family benefited from Erik's experience. I recommend YMUW to any young man who is entering manhood with uncertainty, apathy and fear about his future. The YMUW can help him determine his own compass for an Ultimate life!”
“We should be investing in male rites of passage like this one to grow healthy young men. Mark Schillinger and his team are doing great work.
