By developing the core values of character, Sheepdog Connection helps young men to have a positive and impactful effect on those they meet and love.
Our goal is to develop men who are:
Respected and Respectful
Admired and Admirable
Valued and Valuable
Sheepdog Connection was established to honor the life of Ryan FitzGerald - We lovingly called Ryan a “sheepdog” because he had an attitude of service above self, he was intensely loyal, and he protected, supported and encouraged people around him.
We provide opportunities through our partner organizations for young men to experience the trips that helped to form who Ryan was as a young man and a Sheepdog. It’s our hope that through these experiential trips more young men will be motivated to become Sheepdogs and have a positive impact in their community.
