Ernest Patterson has worked with adolescent clients and their families for the past thirteen years, helping them begin their journey of healing. Through the provision of education, relapse prevention, intervention and hands on treatment, and through the teams of professionals both in the clinical field and outside in the church, community and volunteer opportunities, that he has assembled. He has helped to design proven treatment programs with successful end results. Through the ManKind Project, he has helped to create space for men to transform their lives and find their gold within. Because of his passion in this area, he was chosen to be trained to be a leader that can facilitate the actual transformative process. His association with Boys to Men has allowed me to assemble teams of trusted men to co-create a safe container so that young men could truly experience the safe initiation into manhood. As many are father-less youth, this allows them to connect with healthy male role models and as an organization, come together to support them with the struggles of transitioning from adolescents to adulthood.
