The Gentlemen's Club

Being positive role models for young men!

Our youth of both mentor programs, CHARMS and The Gentlemen's Club, participate in mentoring, community service, and enrichment activities as they gain the ability to lead themselves and others. They also gain the ability to analyze their own strengths and

weaknesses, set personal and vocational goals, and have the self-confidence and

self-esteem to pursue and achieve their goals.
