Men Under Construction is a 12-week program created and developed to give young males (between the ages 13-18) an opportunity to meet and talk to living success stories and to provide them with spiritual guidance while widening their horizons.
In existence for over 20 years, with over 600 students, and 300 graduates, all attendees come away from the class with something that will make a major difference in their lives. The program has sparked nationwide interest from mentor groups as far away as Cincinnati, Detroit, Dallas, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Richmond.
Classes include: personal money management, public speaking, table etiquette, college selection, the “right” woman, successful job interviewing, rejecting negative peer pressure, dealing with authority figures, personal health and hygiene, and more. In these classes, students are trained to be leaders. At the end of the 12-week program, a “Rites of Passage” ceremony is held.
