Jermaine Thomas, a 7th grade math teacher at Natchitoches Junior High School, has created a school club for young men at the school. The club is entitled “Boys to Men Club.” The goal of this club is to teach the guys basic life skills such as appropriate dress attire, good communication skills, social skills, positive social conduct, and respectable mannerism just to name a few.
The guys in the club will be setting goals and working towards a timeline to meet those goals, as well as getting their priorities in order. Every other week, the guys come to school clean cut and “dressed for success” in slacks, dress shirts, dress shoes, and a necktie, along with their mentor.
Thomas says “this type of club was much needed because many young men at this age enter high school lacking these basic skills.”
The guys will be promoting community service around Natchitoches, putting on various fundraisers, and learning the true value of a hard days work. If you would like to contribute or donate to our cause in this club, please contact Mr. Jermaine Thomas at Natchitoches Junior High School or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
