Mr. Ron Britton, CEO/Founder of Megas Adelphos worked tirelessly with juveniles at the Parkview Juvenile Facility in 1993. He volunteered his time, talents and abilities to teach juvenile how to make adjustments in their lives and to build relationships. Out of his compassion to help juvenile in the program, Mr. Britton saw a vision that would ultimately change men, & boys everywhere and he desired to do something to help improve their lives. Hence is the birthing of Megas Adelphos which interpreted means, “Larger Brother.” Mr. Britton wanted to walk with men and boys to show them how the “Larger Brother” walked and carried himself.
