"There are few more charismatic, engaging, and caring people than Dennis Morolda. The good news for educational leaders is that he has made it his life's mission to serve young adults who need someone to show them how to love themselves, love others, and be important parts of their community. Dennis and Building Men need to be everywhere right now because there is little more important than helping students make it through the incredible challenges they are confronting."
At Building Men, we understand that every school has its unique developmental needs. That's why we work with schools to tailor our program to meet the specific needs of your students. What we offer includes: assembly programming, professional development, in-person and online group coaching, and retreat experiences.
We create a safe space for young men to have difficult conversations and encourage them to lean into their vulnerabilities. Through our 12 character pillars, we focus on developing traits like accountability, authenticity, commitment, confidence, courage, curiosity, integrity, humility, leadership, respect, resilience, and self-discipline. These pillars form the foundation for building strong character and preparing young men for success in all aspects of their lives.
Additionally, we emphasize the importance of healthy habits, including sleep, hydration, movement, journaling, reading, nutrition, strength training, practicing gratitude, and limiting screen time. By instilling healthy habits early on, we help young men establish a foundation for a healthy lifestyle that will benefit them for years to come.
Our ultimate goal is to help young men "go one step further than they thought they could go." We believe that by building character, developing healthy habits, and providing a supportive environment, we can help young men achieve their full potential.
Interactive workshop/assembly program for students/athletes/teachers and coaches. Your group will understand the importance of intentionally creating community and meeting the developmental needs of autonomy, competence, fun, relationship and safety.
Focus to Evolve
This workshop focuses on understanding and managing the way we organize our lives. Learn how to multiply your meaningful output in the same number of hours spent in order to create more time for work/life balance. We want you to live your life by design instead of by default. We want you to be the architect of more and more of your minutes. Because, after all, this is YOUR life. You are the expert and master of all that is you.
This workshop focuses on the dynamic combination of the words we use, the stories we tell ourselves, and how we breathe. We map our understanding of the world with our words. Choosing the wrong words to build a thought or a feeling can lead to confusion and conflict. This workshop begins with an understanding of how simple word choice can make massive impact on how we think and feel. We all have stories about our lives. Relationship stories, family stories, money stories, health and fitness stories. This workshop looks at many of these “first drafts” and aims to craft richer, more productive ways to interpret our lives.
Understand the unique developmental needs of the young men in your school/team/organization. This program explores the pillars of masculinity and rites of passage that young men need to be successful in our world.
