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.
