HADDONFIELD, N.J. - Nov. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- The Burlington Camden Achievement Foundation, Inc. is hosting its fifth beautillion program under the theme, "Heirs to the Throne."  This year, the Foundation received a record number of applicants and selected 30 young men ("beaux") from high schools throughout South Jersey and Philadelphia to participate in the beautillion.  The four-month program is designed to educate high school junior and senior males in critical areas that will prepare them for college and subsequent life, such as: etiquette, fiscal responsibility, public speaking and personal branding.  At the culmination of the program, the young men will be presented with scholarships at a black-tie event that will take place on Friday, April 10, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

A welcome reception for the beaux and their parents will be held on Friday, December 5, 2014 at Rutgers University School of Law in Camden, NJ.  The Foundation will host its bi-weekly workshops for the beaux at Rutgers University as well.  Lloyd Freeman, chairman of the beautillion noted, "There is a great benefit to exposing the students to a college campus during the program.  The environment promotes a spirit of academia and excites the young men as they prepare to enter college themselves."

In its six year existence, the beautillion has provided mentoring to approximately 55 young men, with a 98% college acceptance rate among its participants.  Glassboro resident, Kimberly Faire-Gibbons, credits the beautillion with preparing her son, Dwayne Gibbons for college when he participated in 2013.  "The mentorship provided to my son was invaluable and continues to this day," she noted.  "The beautillion is extremely impactful and I would recommend this program to any parent wishing to surround their son with positive male role models."
