BRUSH  BOYS

Brush Boys is an employment program for teenage boys in and around Corvallis, OR whose goal is to provide teenaged boys a mentored work experience.  Our work happens primarily

 

Teen employment has been on a steady and significant decline nationally and in Oregon in recent decades and research has shown that the right kind of work experience can be very beneficial for youth both for their performance as students and for future employment outcomes.   We believe that mentoring is something that happens most effectively in the context of a bigger cause or endeavor and not for the sake of mentoring itself.  We are committed that boys experience themselves as wiser, stronger and as people who have more to offer as a result of their work on the Brush Boys crew. 

We partner with various agencies and organizations including Team Dirt (a local trail building non profit)and Oregon State University Research Forests.  We source and recruit work from the community regularly and invite you to be in touch with us about work you or your organization needs done.   Its our goal to provide low cost or subsidized labor that ensures the Brush Boys crew plenty of work opportunities.   

 

That said, their work experience and supervision is meant to fulfill upon the following intentions:

  • Develop a strong sense of appreciation and respect for hard/physical work

  • Provide real world work experience

  • Develop/Expand  Responsibility, Accountability, Competence and Confidence

  • Develop judgement and problem solving skills

Examples of typical work we do:

 

We focus on making sure the boys have meaningful work that clearly contributes to:

  • The overall mission of Coyle Outside

  • The community at large

  • Generating revenue to sustain and grow Brush Boys

Boys come to us in various ways:

  • By word of mouth and their own curiosity/initiative

  • As a recommendation by a family member, teacher, coach or therapist/counselor

We communicate with referral sources and family when arranged to provide and incorporate updates and feedback.  We are available to correspond directly with support providers to provide consistency with treatment planning and behavioural contracts.
