program was established in 2006 as a means to respond to the urgent
need for positive role models within the community. The primary goal of
the program is to mentor and educate our youth as they encounter the
everyday challenges of coping in today’s society.
Somewhere along the
way, the older generation of males lost touch with their “duty” to
steward and mentor the younger generation. As a result, the consequences
have been far too alarming causing our youth to develop their own forms
of subculture with various forms of initiation. These forms of
subculture may include something as harmless as joining the band, to
something as harmful as joining a violent gang. We (the older
generation) must help them to discover their own individual strengths,
talents, and self-worth. Equipped with this knowledge, these boys can
then encounter a life-altering experience that will affect their current
methodologies in relation to family, church, and society.
