Mentors for Boys

Our school is at Title 1 school with demographics that are majority African American students. The leadership team needed a male influence to mentor our boys. Mr. Gilmore and his team made a major difference. We piloted this venture with 5th grade boys. Weekly Mr. Gilmore faithfully met with the boys for lunch. Immediately we began to see change in our boys. Mr. Gilmore trained them in etiquette and other areas that they could only learn from a man; especially a man they can relate to on many levels. We are grateful for the work they have done and we wish to have them back next school year.
