Gentlemen's Club - Carnahan High School of the Future
For the past four years, a group of men from KWAME have been meeting with the Gentlemen's Club of Carnahan High School of the Future in the St. Louis Public School District to provide mentorship and teach leadership.
Every Wednesday, Charlie Bean, the school’s attendance officer, Tony Thompson, founder and CEO of Kwame Building Group, and a group of KWAME employees meet with the now 35 club members to help them realize their potential.
Now a senior, Michael Boyd can say, “It’s an empowerment. I’ve never seen Mr. Bean or Mr. Thompson step outside of what we call gentleman-like ways,” Boyd said. “They’re not just telling us, they’re showing us the ways.”
