Featured on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” and "America, America," Stephen G. Peters founded the Ladies and Gentlemen's Clubs to save young people from socio-economic and educational boundaries that have been placed upon them.
About the ladies and gentlemen's clubs
The Ladies and Gentlemen Clubs are leadership/mentoring programs geared towards increasing student engagement and motivation through relationship and career building, role-models and mentors, service to the community. The curriculum includes weekly lessons that guide students through areas ranging from, but not limited too, responsibility, etiquette, dignity, and patience. Students meet weekly and are appropriately dressed. Weekly progress reports are completed by teachers and incorporated into a point system i.e. appropriate attire, academic performance, attendance and behavior. High points allow participation in extracurricular activities.
The clubs targets young men and women in elementary, middle and high school.
