Club of Distinguished Gentlemen

The Club of the Distinguished Gentlemen is an educational program that teaches young men various skills needed to develop into well-rounded young men. In the program, students define their values and analyze how well they live out their values. Also, the students do a Media Project in which they examine various sources to see how males are portrayed in the media. As a follow-up, students learn skills needed in a business setting, such as dressing for success, tying a tie, shaking hands, conversing professionally, and correct etiquette for attending a formal dinner. Moreover, students examine their diet and exercise regimens in order to create a healthy lifestyle. Guest speakers include professional men and a personal trainer/dietitian. The program aims to develop confidence and self-esteem in our students as they transition into adults.
