"God created men with a drive to engage in meaningful challenges and celebrate our brotherhood. These are the ultimate goals of Mats to Men. All it takes to begin is a small group of committed and teachable adults with a love of kids and their community."
- Scott Szalwinski & BJ Jones, Mats to Men Co-Founders
“When I first heard more about Mats2Men, I knew instantly this program would fit perfectly into Keeping Every Youth Safe (KEYS) curriculum. The leaders of Mats2Men taught more than what I had even expected. Not only did our students learn the importance of having integrity, team work, and discipline, but it also introduced the them and their families to a new sport. I look forward to continuing our partnership with Mats2Men for years to come. Thank you Mats2Men for everything that you do spoken and unspoken to help males (young and seasoned) have positive interactions within our community.”
- Mrs. Ebony Bowers, KEYS director in partnership with Lexington Police Department
