| The "Boyz to Men" organization is founded under the three principles: Pride, Respect, and Responsibility. The young men meet weekly to encourage each other to make a positive difference within themselves, in their school, and around the community. During the meetings, they learn the importance of staying in school and discuss ongoing issues. They talk about making good decisions and how to handle critical issues, such as peer pressure and gang awareness. They learn self-improvement techniques, such as table etiquette skills and healthy grooming habits. You may see the young men walking around campus wearing a tie every Thursday to help inspire their peers to take pride in their appearance.
"Boyz to Men" club ventures off the school grounds on field trips to experience a variety of adventures. The young men most recent field trip was a tour of the Prairie View A&M University campus. During their visit, they met the University President, George C. Wright, and visited with Dr. Lucian Yates III, Dean of the Whitlowe R. Green College of Education at Prairie View A&M University. A tour stop also included a mathematics lesson taught by a college professor. The students stopped off at the Memorial Student Center dining hall to grab a bite to eat so they could experience the taste of university food.
"Boyz to Men" are looking forward to many more field trips during the school year. Good behavior and good grades are incentives used to be eligible for the field trips. Future field trips include the Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers game on November 4. A trip to the Olive Garden restaurant is in the works where they will get to experience Italian food, and will have a chance to apply the table etiquette skills they learned in the club. The young men will wrap up the school year in May when they attend the end of year "Boyz to Men" formal banquet.
