-- We are happy to have made an alliance with the Cultural Arts Council of Douglasville, where the Friday sessions from 4:00pm to 5:30pm will be held starting in March 2012. We are also very pleased to have formed an alliance with the City of Douglasville's Parks and Recreation Department to hold weekly after school sessions at Jesse Davis Park from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
This camp is a mentoring program designed for boys from the age of 7 up to 16 and shall incorporate the training of all boys (including at-risk boys) from all cultural backgrounds. Training in the areas of discipline, grooming, health, respect, responsibility, culture, physical exercise, reading and communication skills shall be provided. African American history and American history will be studied and also used as a tool in learning how to overcome obstacles.
We are also currently accepting boys in our Weekend Program on Saturday or Sunday from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. We meet at 4300 Yeager Road, Douglasville, GA 30135.
Our goal is to help prepare the boys to become more productive at home, in school and in society in general, by exposing them to positive role models and engaging them with hands-on skills training in the areas of video production, photography, farming and other career options.
