The Curriculum

Gentlemen's Society Mentors teach over twenty life courses that must not only be completed, but the skill must be mastered and demonstrated in the lives of the potential Gentlemen's Society men.

In Gentlemen's Society, there are not many written tests; life is the test.

Gentlemen’s Society is designed to mentor young men between the ages of 12-18 in order to educate them about life choices, self respect, and goals.  Participants will attend weekly classes throughout the school year; outings after school will also be included in order to enhance the course message.
