THE GENTLEMEN'S LEAGUE
Founded in 2013, by Mr. Archie M. Moss, Jr., MAT




WE ARE . . .

A dropout prevention intervention/ mentorship program for minority young boys "at-risk" of dropping out of school and/or choosing a life of crime. The program will serve middle school students.

A PROMISE OF SUCCESS . . .

When students enter the program, they are guaranteed a chance to attend college or advance through a potpourri of post-secondary opportunities geared toward the next level of education. Mentors from the program assist students with their matriculation through middle school into high school and into post-secondary opportunities.

Short Term Impact: Students who participate in the Gentlemen’s League will be tracked quarterly to determine the effectiveness of the program. The short term impact of the program:
  • Less suspensions/ disciplinarian issues
  • Increase is students’ personal values
  • Increase in student achievement
  • Increase in school/student morale
  • Increase in leadership development
  • Increase in accountability

Long Term Impact: Statistics show that males who are enrolled into a mentorship program are more likely to attend a college or university. Students who participate in the program and graduate statistically have no further negative contact with violations of student conduct codes or the law. When students enter the program, they are guaranteed a chance to attend college or advance through a potpourri of post-secondary opportunities geared toward the next level of education. Other long term effects are:
  • Increase in student achievement
  • Decrease in student dropout rates.
  • Increased number of student admitted into college.
  • Increase in students college/career readiness
  • Decrease in behavioral issues in/out of school

SUPPORT . . .

We are in need of support from district officials, private sectors, and businesses and organizations. Funding has been derived from grants.

FUTURE OF THE PROGRAM . . .

The goal is to expand the efforts of the Gentlemen's League throughout the district of Charlotte- Mecklenburg schools and across the United States, transforming it to a national program. As a school-wide or district program, its efforts would be riveting as we watch minority males suspension rates decrease, student achievement increase, and high school dropout rates decrease one day at a time.
