“I create the space where others can experience the love and healing that is waiting for them so they can realize their own potential, especially young men.”
Jeff Kidman was initiated into Men’s work in 1994 and has been involved in Men’s circles and volunteer leadership since then. Jeff has been working with Boys to Men USA/Mentoring to Manhood New England since 2008. During the summer of 2004 he had a revelation that more needs to be done in providing initiation for our boys. Men have been initiating other men but initiation was and is meant for the young, to bring them into a path toward mature manhood. Jeff had been reading and working on how to accomplish this locally when Boys to Men New England was founded by Dave Bolduc and John Cummings. He was there at the first Boys Adventure Weekend in New England in 2008 and has been working with them in various capacities ever since, including as event leader for many weekend events and as Executive Director. In October of 2016 Jeff was able to represent BTMNE with other local centers at the national Boys to Men summit where a national non-profit was formed to support and grow this work nationally.
