Studies show that when positive males are present in the academic setting, then behavior gets better, grades rise, the effects of crime or being involved in crime go down.
In response to this need, the Boys to Men Klub at Grant Elementary School was founded.
To prepare every boy to become an accountable, engaged man and leader in his family and our community.
NEXT MAN UP!
The next man is up to coach our boys. And each boy is the next man up in our community.
HOW IT WORKS
The program is for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys at the school. We focus on three main points: what it takes to be successful, career opportunities and building relationships.
The boys meet once a week during recess and learn about respect, creativity, leadership and academic success, among other topics. Every month, they can attend an evening social and mingle and hear from men in the community.
